Palm P102UEU “Pre 2” clears FCC with Euro 3G/UMTS

Palm's new webOS smartphone looks to be another step closer to launch, with the European 3G/UMTS version crossing the FCC as the Palm P102UEU.  Tipped to be Europe's Palm Pre 2, the test results apparently suggest a slider with very similar aesthetics to the existing Pre (since the two share the same part number for the Touchstone-compatible battery cover) and a 1GHz processor.

While HP is hard at work at trying to figure out what devices they want to see their newly acquired webOS mobile Operating System on, it looks like Palm (as much as it still exists), is still hard at work on making not only webOS 2.0 better, but also the device(s) that are still coming down the pipe.
