O2 adds to Palm range
O2 will start selling Palms new handsets the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus from 28 May.
The Pixi Plus is the manufacturer's thinnest phone and will be aimed at the social networking market. There are also a range of changeable covers available for the Pixi Plus.
The Pre Plus has a slider keyboard and offers all the features of Palm webOS.
Both handsets are available on 18 and 24 month contracts on a range of price plans, which include unlimited texts and unlimited data.
Palm chairman and chief executive officer, Jon Rubinstein said: 'We are excited to bring Pre Plus and Pixi Plus to the market for O2 customers. With the choice of these two new Palm webOS phones, customers across the UK can stay connected, so they never miss a thing.'
O2 and Carphone Warehouse stopped buying Palm Pres, the manufacturers UK launch handset, earlier this year because they had enough to meet demand.
Palm was bought by Hewlett Packard for £657m in April.
