    Only about two months late but congrats to whoever won the latest Touchstone2 on eBay. If you can afford it it's an awesome webOS device (accessory?) to have.

    I finally got to see one at the St Louis meetup. Awesome little device. It's a shame it never launched.

    Real shame many things didn't happen with WebOS and HP as it had great potential. Pre3 hardware is much nicer than the iPhone 5. If this had caught on I suspect Apple may have developed something similar too.

    Yes.. they are really small and compact for what they do.. it's a tight fit in there too, with only mm to spare above & below the PCB and on either side of the coils.
    ~ I pulled one apart recently as I suspected poor connections between the PCB and the (micro!) audio-jack socket, which isn't soldered, but relies upon sprung connectors to contact pads on the board!

    It can be a bit finicky, but I also really like the 'auto-pairing' via the NFC BT-prompt setup too.

    ..And any concerns about volume levels/equalization can be addressed with the excellent 'TouchVol' App.

    The earlier (usually all black) prototypes that registered as 'BlueTunes ROM' (as opposed to the later silver/black 'TouchStone2 Audio Dock') are not as evolved firmware-wise, will transmit a 'beep' when connecting to BT - and really do have pathetic volume levels!

    Samsung are only just starting to catch up really ~ maybe Apple will go for something like it on their next version?

    I was hoping somebody on this Forum could help me identify if I have a genuine HP Touchstone 2 for Palm Pre 3. It looks identical to all of the pictures I have seen except for on the bottom, above the HP Logo, it says
    CONFIG 1A
    EVT-NOT FOR RESALE-
    I am unfamiliar with the HP Palm Series and I was given this Audio Dock as well as a Sprint HP Palm Pre 3 & an unlocked HP Palm 2. I attached some pictures of the HP Touchstone. Thanks in advance for anyone taking the time to help me,

    That's a TS 2. Congratulations.

    Look at the second page of this thread for some tips on getting it to work. It will charge the phone, but you also get the Bluetooth connection. This works with other phones as well, but not always, and not with the Pre 3 autopairing feature.

    You were given these items? Whoah, very cool! I've heard of the Sprint Pre3 but never seen one, and I'd be interested in acquiring it if you don't have a use for it.

    Wow, someone just handed you two unicorns, that's amazing. Congratulations on owning some VERY difficult to obtain items.

    You are indeed lucky!

    Either because you were given some nice devices or because someone will probably offer you some nice money for that touchstone.

    BTW Krotech's comment above likely applies to the bluetooth function only (I don't have one, so not an expert). The charging is a proprietary standard and only works with webOS phones (unless you physically transplant a coil to another phone).

    If you are new to webOS, then I'm afraid the HP servers were shut down last month, but it's still possible to use to use the phones - you just have to do a bit of tinkering. Fortunately, webOS is extremely customisable! If the phones came with apps on, you might want to look into backing them up. There are also methods to back up your data - this was formerly done automatically.

    Here are some guides:
    The Pre 2 & HP Veer in 2014 | pivotCE
    The Pre 3 and HP TouchPad in 2014 | pivotCE

    Guide: Coming (Back) to webOS in 2014, Part 1 | pivotCE (This assumes a 'new' or reset phone - if your phone is working OK, there's no need to do this and now the profile servers are gone, you shouldn't reset unless you've made a complete backup.)

    I hope you enjoy your new toys.

    Cool! It's genuine!

    Try pairing it with the Pre3 on Bluetooth.. the earliest prototypes will show up there as 'Blue Tunes ROM' and the later versions as 'Touchstone 2 Audio Dock'. Neither were ever released by HP.

    As far as I know it should auto-pair via the NFC pick-up coils OK too (you may have to make a few attempts, as it can be quite 'fussy'), but you must first have both a stereo audio jack (and also a powered Micro USB) plugged into the device, in order to actually 'switch on' this Bluetooth/Audio feature.

    Enjoy!

    Uh-Oh! Maybe she sold the TS2 for $500 and has taken off on Holiday!

    if you used PayPal, check with them if you are still in time to block the transaction. You have 30 days for sure

    You have plenty of time under PayPal's rules. Just to give an update. I paid $215.95 for the touchstone 2 including shipping. I was in constant contact with this person the whole time until I was notified it shipped. That was the last time I heard from them. No tracking number or anything. I asked about it every few days. Saturday was 2 weeks from that message. I have filed with PayPal to get my money back. This all seems so strange. I used PayPal. So I'll definitely get my money back. And PayPal will go after them. How does this work as a scam? It doesn't add up.

    I guess if you can sell (a non existent?) item enough times over, one of them may eventually 'come good' for you as a scammer?

    Yuk!

    wow I can't believe that was a scammer. I wonder if she ever even had the touchstone 2, or if she was using stock photos from someone else.

    Has anyone seen those pictures she posted before? There isn't even that many touchstones 2, so all the pictures usually end up on this forum!

    I haven't seen those pic before anyway.. maybe Alan Morford will update us on the eventual outcome?

    Never received. "Barb" never replied to me or PayPal. I'm guessing it was a hacked PayPal account and they did a money transfer. I think the account should be banned personally. I'm not an admin though. Oh and I did get my money back from PayPal.
