Apparently AMD has quietly introduced dual-core Phenom processors in Europe:
According to a screenshot taken on price search engine in Europe and published by Hardware-Infos web-site, AMD has started shipping AMD Phenom X2 GE-6400 (1.90GHz, 1MB of L2 cache [512KB per core], 2MB L3 cache), GE-6500 (2.10GHz, 1MB of L2 cache [512KB per core], 2MB L3 cache) and GE-6600 (2.30GHz, 1MB of L2 cache [512KB per core], 2MB L3 cache) microprocessors to channel customers.

Not all specifications are clear, for example, thermal design power of the chips is rumoured to be 45W, but indirect information points to 65W or even around 90W TDP, but it is definitely that the chips should be drop-in compatible with socket AM2+ infrastructure.
