    Nice story! I got outbid, but I'm still watching it.

    I could use a spare Pre3 and don't really NEED a Touchstone 2, but like a TouchPad Go, it would be really cool to have!

    And a Foleo too....

    Phew.. that's the full 'collection' isn't it?
    And how much of this stuff do we really NEED anyway!

    I guess it's hard to know whether this 'obsolete' hardware is actually going to go down in price ~ or even UP, as time passes by ~ I guess it's a case of supply & demand?

    But I was lucky with a TS2 from an ex-HP employee too.. so there is always good hope.

    Yes, if you count the Touchpad one, then I have 4 distinctly different Touchstones, although two of them are different only in looks, from each other, as far as I can tell.

    The shorter one looks like an earlier Touchstone 1? I take it you picked it up from a pile at work?

    There's a Foleo on eBay.

    EDIT: Never mind. The auction must have ended. :/

    EDIT2: Nope, it is there! Search "palm foleo"

    Yeah, no one seems to remember exactly what the story was with those. If they were a beta for the original TS or something that just never went as far as production back in the Pre+ or Pre2 timeframe.

    But I guess N0.3's inductive charging coils (&magnets?) are the same as those in No.1?
    Didi you peep inside yet?

    It works. Something about the shorter one makes me feel like it was a prototype of something that would've followed the original, it just looks/feels like it's design is newer. Someone may have had a specific purpose for it in mind, possibly, it holds a phone at a decidedly different angle than the touchstones we all know.

    I imagine it's largely the same as a regular one inside. I don't know how to open a Touchstone, though. If someone points me to directions i can have a look.

    I believe their are screws under the gecko feet. I know that there were going to be car accessories, and such. I don't really know Manu Chatterjee all that well, but he would definitely know more. What is written on the bottom where the copyright and FCC ID would be?

    Maybe that TouchStone was meant for one of the longer devices like the windsor, but cost less than the TS2

    Does it even have gecko sticky on the bottom? Or could it be meant to work with a second plastic piece that allowed car mount or wall mount, etc.

    I can't imagine why it would face a phone straight up. Very cool to see another secret product though! Thx!!

    It looks very much like a QI charger, so not really surprising, but the angle is definitely less than ideal for anything but just charging.

    Wow, that auction ended at $460 for the Touchstone 2 and Verizon Pre3!?!

    Too rich for my blood. I'm mad at myself for missing a Preł that ended at just over $100.

    That's still less than what I collectively paid for my Pre3 and TS2 in 2011 and 2013, respectively.
