Our good friends over at PreCentral
have just received a couple of juicy scoops, even for this time of the day. According to their proven tipster, what we're looking at here is an upcoming webOS phone sans keyboard -- a first for Rubinstein's
crew, as many of you might already know. While there's not much detail to go with this pic, it appears that this here slate's just slightly bigger than the Pre 3, and that the little spot above the screen could be either a front-facing camera or merely a proximity sensor. Following PreCentral's
logic, this could very well be the Stingray that showed up in the list of codenames
back in November -- the similarly sized Pre 3 is Mantaray, whereas the smaller Veer
is Broadway, leaving Stingray and Windsor unclaimed. But of course, we wouldn't place our bets just yet.
Speaking of the Pre 3, the same tipster also sent in a spyshot of said phone connected to Verizon. While we already know
that this slider packs both CDMA and GSM radios, this is actually the first prototype seen running on the former. Alas, the mysterious tipster is again keeping a tight lip about this leak. Picture after the break.
