    My (second) Touchstone shipped today as well. If I knew it'd be that fast I wouldn't picked up another from them.

    Just ordered mine. Crazy how I never saw this thread till now. I ordered the kit from precentral store, but needed an extra one for work. Awesome.

    Now to get a replacement wall charger so I can have a touchstone at my desk at work and one at home.......
    Looks like mine may arrive tomorrow as they are shipping from the warehouse in Hogkins IL.

    I am in the same boat as you, I need another wall charger but don't know if I want to pay $40 for the one from palm. That just seems excessive. Anyone near a fry's electronics that will go get me one of the $9.99 ones that are on sale for the 800w? LOL

    Here ya go. I just mounted it with a similar tape to the other gentleman that did his car, but the tape I used is the 3M emblem mounting tape for automobiles. It will still come off without leaving residue. Here are a few pics I took with my instinct from different angles. The car charger is the sprint branded charger from the sprint store that everyone has been using "for palm micro usb phone" and is .85ma.

    OK, I'm toast with my wife, but I just bought two Amazon Touchstones and another AC/cord from ebay. $80 total, but now I'm set. 1 for the car, which I'm using now, one for home and one for work.

    Didn't really need the one for home given I've warmed up to charging through USB along with my Jawbone 2. But, I figure just go TS all the way and never go back. I know somebody will have a knock-off by Christmas at half the price, but oh well that's the early adopter penalty. I've done what I can. So far

    • Pre - $199
    • Invisible shield $18
    • IS Installation - $10
    • Multiple Chargers (garage sale material) - $30
    • Palm Car Charger - $30
    • Seidio Holster - $32 (tax & shipping)
    • Car installation materials - $15
    • 1 Touchstone - $60
    • 2 Touchstones - $60
    • 1 AC charger with cable - $20


    Total = $474

    That's ridiculous, but true. Everything but the touchstones were must haves. I haven't even bought any software. I'm HOSED.

    Now I need to sell my Treo 700P, my Centro, my misc cables and hopefully get this down to $350.

    Well, at least with the chargers, microUSB is set to be a standard for a pretty long time, so those should be reusable on future devices (and I'd imagine the Touchstones should be as well, as long as your next device is by Palm).

    I know what you mean though, I bought the Pre, 2 Touchstones, a bunch of generic microUSB cables from monoprice, and two spare AC adapters, and a car charger for around $130 extra from what the Pre cost. And that's before buying any software!

    I used the link provided in the "Chargers that work with the Touchstone" thread -- here it is on Amazon for $2.93.

    ht tp://w ww.amazon. com/gp/product/B001PBKJQ8/ref=ox_ya_oh_product
    (remove the spaces in http and www, and after amazon)

    Add shipping and it's $6.

    Quick question. I have two of the kits on order because I figure I get an extra back I ordered it through this website because they were $49 for the kit, while the dock alone was only $39. Do I really need the extra back? If not I will still order one kit and then order this Touchstone for $29. Thanks.

    I bought a full kit (Touchstone plus back) and then all you need is another Touchstone. Your second option, to be concise (though you will need an extra charger regardless).

    Sounds like I will also need the USB Cable, so I will just cancel the 2nd kit and order a couple of those.
