It’s sure to become a staple with future mobile phones, but wireless charging
for the Palm Pre requires an alternate soft matte battery cover. Palm is calling their unique puck sized wireless charging system the Touchstone and will only work with magnets built into the matte cover. The original glossy back finish does not include the magnets required to work with it. There are some obvious pros and cons with each cover, but consumers looking to show off that new innovative feature will be required to use only one. The glossy cover does add some fashion appeal to the device and makes it a finger print magnet at the same time. While the matte soft finish will give off that always clean feel when holding it. Nonetheless, we’re still excited at the possibilities this feature will create with the phone industry.
