Palm Pre 2 Hitting Verizon Shelves November 11th, Sources Claim

We've already seen an internal training document claiming that the Palm Pre 2 would be landing on Verizon's network some time in the future, but then we got confirmation from HP that the device, the true successor to the original Palm Pre (or Palm Pre Plus, even) would be landing on Verizon "in the coming months." To some, that "coming months" part would mean that HP is aiming for a holiday shopping release, but it could also mean that they'll miss that date and land some time in early 2011. According to some sources speaking with Droid-Life, it may be sooner than we all assumed.

According to the sources, who were also confirming that Android-based handsets would be landing on the Verizon network at the same time, the Palm Pre 2 will hit Verizon shelves and airwaves on November 11th. This is just a rumor for now, so take this bit of news with a grain of salt. Of course, the main takeaway of the new Pre is the introduction of webOS 2.0, and all of its new features. However, many people are looking forward to the upgraded hardware, too, even if it does look like the first model. If the November 11th date pans out, we have less than a month to wait before the handset starts showing up in Verizon stores across the nation. Who's hoping?
