Despite Palm’s acquisition by HP, it’s business as usual for Palm devices, as O2 UK has confirmed that it will be offering the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus come May 28th. Specifications are pretty much what we’ve come to know about these two phones, but we’re more interested in the rate plans. The bad news is that there doesn’t seem to be anything lower than £25 ($36) a month, though it does come with unlimited text and data. While the word “unlimited” might be enticing to many, as are the multitasking capabilities of of webOS, it’ll be interesting to see how the response to these devices are, since more powerful phones such as the HTC Desire are already being offered to the masses. Will the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus still be able to lure subscribers in, or will HP really need to shake something up to revive the company? Check out the full table of rate plans at O2′s announcement page.
