France is running around crazy with their new telephones today, all jumping into the air, swinging around signposts, falling down into train station holes. Why? Because today is the day they get their Palm Pre 2, launched on the SFR network. The pricing is between € 99.90 on contract and on up to € 399.90 off-contract. This lovely little device is rocking the P102UEU, which means it's a wild animal.
This Palm Pre 2 has a AZERTY keyboard, which, if you're not familiar with, is very similar to the QWERTY you're used to, but a bunch of the keys are switched around to be more friendly to the French dictionary. This French version is also working on European 3G bands, which means that between these two rather important factoids, it seems that it'd be much to the benefit of developers, unlocker hackers, and crazy people who cannot wait a single moment until they have the newest device to wait that extra amount of time and get the US version when they can.
