Rumor: Shipment of Palm Pre handsets headed to the US right now

Take this Internet rumor as you would any other Internet rumor. According to an tipster though, a UPS plane is current enroute to the companies main hub in Louisville, KY with a shipment of Palm Pre cell phones.

The tipster claims that they left Hong Kong earlier this morning. We still don’t know the official launch date for the Pre but you would expect that if the phone was to launch anytime within the next month, these retail units should start hitting warehouses sometime soon. Still, keep this filed as an Internet rumor.
