Hey, France, you really want to rub some salt in AT&T customers' wounds for no reason other than the fact that you're feeling scrappy? Well, alright then: pop open your web browsers come next Tuesday and navigate over to SFR's site, where you'll be able pick up the GSM flavors of both the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, which confirms previous chatter that an April date for these devices east of the Atlantic was a lock. Both devices will have access to Palm's Mobile Hotspot app (though there'll be additional usage charges associated with it) along with a selection of custom goodies like SFR TV and SFR Wi-Fi, which presumably helps customers identify the extensive WiFi hotspot network they're entitled to by virtue of using the phone. Oh, and if you don't want to order online, you'll be able to pick these bad boys up in-store starting May 11.
