IconMore mobile phone news! Rumours of an upcoming Palm Pre 2 have been swirling for a while, but now a French carrier has jumped the gun and spilled all the beans. Clearly a transitional device to bridge the gap between the first true HP devices, the devices updates and streamlines the Palm Pre Plus with an updated case, display, and internals. Also, it will pack webOS 2.0.

HP has already stated that new webOS devices will arrive early next year, but in the meantime, Palm fans are going to need something to keep them awake. The Pre 2 seems to be the solution to that problem.

It looks pretty much like a Pre/Plus, but packs a faster processor (1Ghz), more memory (512MB), a slightly updated case design (no more problematic USB cover), and presumably a glass display (instead of plastic). It would also appear that the device is made out of a different (sturdier?) type of plastic. It will run webOS 2.0. It'll most likely pack some more changes, but we'll have to wait for the official announcement for more details.

No word on pricing and availability.
