that link proves my point. Read the actual article you linked to.
from the article:
...HP's Facebook page for students has given us a more specific date: November 8th. They write:
Check out the Palm Pre Plus 2, pre-orders begin 11/8
Setting aside the fact that they mistakenly added a "Plus" to the product name there, what we don't know is whether this refers to the Verizon version or the unlocked GSM version. Either way, it looks like a safe bet that the Pre 2 is going to arrive very soon.
