I personally think it is lame that it only works with the matte cover and not both, but i guess the glossy cover could get scratched from the touchstone charger.... but that sounds like a design flaw to me. Another question that arises, does the phone come with the matte cover, as the touchstone is going to be an additional accessory anyway. Or do you have to buy the matte cover and the touchstone separately, or is the matte cover and the touchstone charging base come together in a combo pack? These are questions that will be released no doubt in due time.

First thing that comes to mind is that the glossy finish cover might slide right off the touchstone as it is angled... I dont know, call me crazy.. Am I the only one that thought that? So I see a reason for the matte finish cover...function sometimes does come over form
