    @Ventus221 - So for a while there, you could have convinced yourself that it was only you and x 2 others with T2's -
    The rare WebOS devices and accessories. ?

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but also when a giant such as HP stuffs-up that badly, then it is of historical (and thereby 'geek-collectable') proportions!
    But is it a worthy 'investment' too?

    Ok for a while I thought it was only me and a few other people with it but I kinda had a feeling I was wrong. But I still feel a little special ;p

    Yeah it was worth it.

    Cool! Well there can't be that many out there anyway - perhaps we'll know when these ebay sources finally 'dry up'!
    Black or Silver case?

    I suspect that these are ex-hardware peeps that managed to obtain a few? Or friends/family of these people? Dunno.
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    Which is bigger, the Veer or the dock!
    Welcome to the club! I've used the audio a bit, and it's not as bad as I thought. There is an audible buzz at low volume though. As I've said before, it's more suited for Nirvana than for Vivaldi.

    By my count there are at least seven or eight in the wild. Three or four of us here own one, and there are those three still on eBay. BTW, even though you didn't ask me, mine is silver.

    Only if we can have a TouchPad Go owners thread... :P

    Seriously I would think by now the owners of the three currently listed would see the market willing to pay $300+ for these has dried up and lower them to a more reasonable price - say $150?
    Devices: Pre3 16GB (AT&T - webOS 2.2.4) | White TouchPad 4G 32GB (AT&T - webOS 3.0.5 + LunaCE)

    Ummm.. Does this count instead??

    It's a 'mutated' version 'Touchstone 1.5' - (without BT Audio!) - and it only cost $10.

    Some time ago, I was considering what it would take to mount a BT audio receiver into a touchstone, you can get those on tiny little circuit boards for like $20 or something, as parts. The only thing you'd be missing then is the automatic identification when the phone hits the touchstone.
