Could Palm's attempt to reinvigorate their dreary financial performance include adding the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus to their O2 line-up?  That's the rumor over at Tracy & Matt, who have received an anonymous tip claiming that the two devices will arrive in April 2010.  O2 have already been offering the GSM version of the Palm Pre for some months now, but so far the Pixi - which has a smaller display and candybar form-factor - is yet to make an appearance outside of the US.
