Pre Plus receives European certification

Not that long after the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus launched on Verizon here in the states, the folks over at WinFuture.de have uncovered certifications for the handset in Europe. TÜV Rheinland, a German firm that handles wireless certifications in Europe, had in its hands a product from Palm that may ring some bells: the P101EWW. Otherwise known as the Palm Pre Plus. According to TÜV Rheinland’s certification page, the P101EWW (or in GSM parlance, the P101UNA), cleared their standards back on 12 November, 2009. As WinFuture noted, O2 recently reduced the price of the Palm Pre on their network. Whether this is a move to clear stock in anticipation of the arrival of the Pre Plus on their network, to attract more customers before the newer phone arrives on a competitor’s network (FYI, O2 does not operate in France where SFR will be getting the Pre), or simply a natural progression of dropping technology costs and slackened demand is unclear.
