With the Palm Pre's release so close, it's inevitable that the swirl of rumors and leaks are on the rise. The latest case comes from a site called MydigitalFC, which has posted what appears to be David Pogue's review of the Palm Pre. It could be that a syndicator or New York Times partner got trigger-happy, but we should note that Pogue's review has not been published to The New York Times Web site, so until you see the real thing, take the review with a grain of salt.

If it's legit, Pogue seems to be mostly complimentary of the Pre, saying that the pros outweigh the cons and that the smartphone is a "credible challenge" to the iPhone. This is in contrast to the Boy Genius Report's "review" from last week, which only had a few praises and called the handset "second rate." Only after numerous reader complaints did BGR update its post to say that he was reviewing a non-final unit.

And be sure to read CNET's full review of the Palm Pre, which just went up.
