Palm Pre too big and ugly for ya…how about a Mini-Pre?

The Palm Pre hasn’t even been released yet, however that isn’t stopping Palm from grabbing the cellphone market by the horns and trying to own the market like they used to.  While rumors of a smaller “iPhone nano” have been persistent on the web, nothing has materialized either physically, or in writing.  Many even suspect that Apple doesn’t want to have a stratified line up of phones.  Palm on the other hand isn’t taking the slow road wit their new webOS powered devices and is now rumored to be “very far along” on a “mini-Pre”.  How mini?  Dunno.  I would assume some of the excess fat would be trimmed and possibly the slide out qwerty tossed in favor of an onscreen jobby that will directly compete (sorta kinda) with the iPhone/Blackberry Storm, and several other full touchscreens out there.  Only time will tell if the “mini-Pre” is really just that - a miniature sized Pre, or if it is in fact a completely new model line.  I’m hoping for the latter.  A new model will help grab more market share and attract more users as opposed to simply a shrunken Pre.  Thoughts and concerns?
