    hi,
    Does the Palm Pre 2 come with a touchstone back?
    The Pre Plus did and the Pre 2 also has the matte back, but is it a touchstone back?

    The palm pre 2 webpage on palm.com says the touchstone cover is sold separately... does that mean they're now just making non-TS backs that are matte?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, MassiveBongFace (haha).
    Time to order a dock then!

    I wonder why the palm website says it's an optional add-on.

    Didn't they just decide to ship all of the Pre Pluses and Pre 2s with touchstone backs?

    Was rather silly for them to ship the original pres without the backs considering how little they actually cost. I guess they thought they could charge more for accessories.

    By the way, the touchstone back on the Pre 2 is exactly the same as the well... touchstone back we've been using right?

    They should just throw the charger in while they are at it. I really see it more as a neat selling point for the phone in the first place more so than an accessory.

    When you have a feature that no other phone has, you dont sell it as an accessory, you flaunt it as a selling point.

    Marketing 101. Although Palm was always high in that class or skipping, we already know that.
