Palm 'P102UEU' hits FCC: the European Pre 2?

Okay, we know what you're saying: why would a Europe-bound device be getting FCC certification? Well, really, it's a simple matter of making sure that devices capable of roaming stateside are compliant with all the necessary rules and regulations... and it's on that note that we direct your attention to this P102UEU model that's just been approved. In Palm parlance, "P102" refers to the model -- most likely the rumored Pre 2 in this case -- and "UEU" means that it's a UMTS 3G device destined for the EU. As you might recall, the similarly-styled P102UNA and P102EWW (North American UMTS and CDMA, respectively) were just spotted in TÜV Rheinland's database not long ago, so yeah, all signs are pointing to an announce pretty shortly.

Update: PreCentral's forum members have swarmed upon the filing and rooted out some juicy details -- it's almost certainly a slider since the unit was tested in both open and closed positions, it's got an 1150mAh battery (the same capacity as the current Pre / Pre Plus), and thanks to some part number matching, it seems it has exactly the same rear cover (Touchstone-compatible, naturally) as the current models, so odds are good we're not going to see much form factor innovation here. Most notably, though, the processor is listed at 1GHz, though it's not clear which specific core is in use; TI's OMAP3600 series (the same that's found in the Droid 2 and Droid X) seems probable, though.
