    the camera appears to be in the center of the back the pre's camera is on the right side

    what i mean is the side we see is the face of the pre. The thing in the center could be the silver thing in the middle of the pre... although it looks a bit circular instead of elongated....

    i didnt think of that i mean i guess it would make sense if he were taking a pic of himself or looking in the mirror but i still like to dream

    Nice catch.
    Here is a closer look. The circle that seems like a camera lens is slightly off center but not like a Pre. The back looks like it has an invisishield cover by the look of the edges. Yet one has to answer why would he have that on there. It seems to be slightly wider and thicker when compared to him holding a Pre.

    I think it is a pre with the slider open and instead of "sprint" or "verizon" on the mirror maybe its the palm logo. it looks like the mirror to me though.

    What? In both pictures you see no mirror. If I run this in the limited enhancement software I have on this computer which I through over to a 46" monitor, I see no indication of any kind of a mirror or even a hint of anything other then a shadow from the fingers on the back of the phone. There is no reflection. Then the side of the phone does not show that it is open to reveal a slight half thickness.

    update:
    I just tried to get the circle and first finger section to the 46". The picture is such a low res. that I am having trouble to keep any clarity with enhancements now. But if there is a mirror there ( which is a good guess) it is not of the same shape as the one on the Pre. There is little to no reflection from the circle. It could be a frosted area. Good call again byosphere. We just need to find a high res pic of this if we can.

    Does seem thicker. As far as the size from side to side doesn't it seem wider there. Does anyone know of a good pick that looks close to the same as this one (finger placement) where we know he it holding a Pre?
    If you find one post the link or PM me. I could then run measurements on everything.

    The article where that picture came from, Palm Promotes Ex-Apple Rubinstein To CEO by Dan Frommer, was posted on June 10, 2009 in the Business Insider.

    I thought I saw this photo months ago, maybe not but it does seem like i've seen it before. It might just be a prototype of the pre before it was on any carrier.
