Palm Repeating Pre Errors

Went past my local O2 emporium today and noticed that the Palm concession stand was sporting a Pixi Plus and what I have to assume was a Pre Plus too.

I say assume because I wasn't even tempted to nip in and have a play with one. I know that I like the Pre and WebOS, just as I know that the prices being asked for the new models are no more realistic than that of the original.

I wonder whether the arrival of HP's management will introduce Palm to the concepts of cost/benefit and perceived value. Then we might see pricing models which get people buying...
