Pre Plus & Pixi Plus face Europe as Palm attempt turnaround

Palm look to be continuing to make good on their promise to turn around company fortunes by leveraging their existing handset line-up, and the next stage in that is a European release of the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus.  Spotted crossing the GCF (Global Certification Forum)'s testing as the Palm P101UEU and P121UEU, the two devices are quadband GSM and dualband 900/2100MHz HSDPA.

The Palm Pre has already been on sale in various European countries for several months now, though unconfirmed rumors suggested that consumer demand had been less than impressive.  So far carrier O2 has been Palm's partner of choice, offering the Pre in the UK, Ireland, Germany and elsewhere, and it remains to be seen whether Palm continues that exclusivity or – maybe more likely – look to get the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus on as many networks as possible.
