    Not really, because it's a fairly well known rumor that the go parts were sourced but mostly not assembled...

    It came in yesterday afternoon (was delayed a day by snow). I'm loving it so far. It's smaller than I thought for some reason and charges my Pre3 a lot faster than the regular Touchstone seems to. It fits better and the angle is a lot nicer for the larger device and exhibition mode.

    The Veer (and I'd assume other webOS phones) work fine on it also.

    My only dislike about it is the lack of the sticky gecko material on the bottom which instead is just rubber. Combined with how light the Touchstone2 and how much better the magnet holds the Pre3 means if I try to pick the phone up the Touchstone2 comes with it.

    Also, I haven't been able to get the Bluetooth audio to work yet. Even after plugging speakers in and it prompting me to activate Bluetooth on my Pre3 it makes a strange beeping sound through the speakers and says it failed to connect. I'll have to keep messing with it but it's not a huge deal for me.

    I'm very happy I finally have one though and feels like the perfect accessory for a Pre3!

    Bev, myself, and a couple of others here had that Touchstone2 when we were beta testing the Pre3 and Touchpad. I still cannot believe they made us give those chargers back after everything was shut down. Grrrrrrr

    That's really cool. I hope you figure out the audio issue. I'd be very bummed if I bought one of those and couldn't get the audio working.

    Thanks. I got it paired and working with my Veer so apparently it's something going on with my Pre3 not the Touchstone2.

    True. Wish I'd thought of that when I first tried it!

    That's exactly what I thought when I got mine: HP Touchstone 2 available

    Yes.. I had similar issues with random bleeping and getting the Pre3 to pair correctly.
    I rebooted the Pre3 and also deleted any other paired BT items in it's list and eventually got it hooked up fine.
    Once paired correctly it has since given no problems.
    Maybe a bit of self-adhesive 'Velcro' on your desk & TS2 would allow for one handed removal of the phones?
    Enjoy!

    Can you buy that gecko-pad stuff anywhere to stick on things?

    Edit: Google and ye shall find - http://www.narescue.com/portal.aspx?CN=7250FBC7FE5F

    Looks like Amazon has the same stuff in a single roll: http://www.amazon.com/NAR-Gecko-Grip...bosnation0e-20

    I've seen soft rubber self-adhesive pads - but nothing quite as 'sticky'.
    Best bet might be to buy a cheapo Palm Puck unit & then carefully peel & transfer the gecko sticky pad to the TS2/other thing?

    Yeah, if you had a dead Touchstone, that would be a good source. I think I'm going to order a roll of that tape I found on Amazon just to see if it is as good. They call it rescue tape - the first site seems to be related to animal rescue. I suppose that tape would not leave sticky residue all over whatever critter you are putting it on.

    I rebooted and tried again and eventually got it to connect. It's working fine now.

    I'll definitely think about some Velcro or the gecko tape material. Right now I'm pretty happy to just have it and everything working correctly. I'm loving the angle it has my Pre3 sitting at for using it while charging!

    Hmm... I'm wondering if that's really the same thing as what's on the OG Palm puck. There's a wiki page on this type of dry adhesion tape. On the different types, they mention both "Gecko tape" and a "Nanotube" type.
    Synthetic setae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    From the original Touchstone promos, I seem to recall that Palm bragged about using the nanotech type which does in fact have almost a factor 50 better adhesion and came out of labs as recently as 2005.

    But let us know how it goes!

    Fascinating stuff, thanks for the link.

    Looks like the last one has been sold. It's no longer showing up on eBay. Happy it's at least going to someone who will use it instead of sitting around.

    Well the verdict is in: this is definitely not the same stuff. Just seems like really thick duct tape. Single-sided, impossible to tear, and so far doesn't seem to leave a residue. I stuck a piece to my workbench and after 3 days there was no residue. Going to give it a longer test and figure out if it is really suited for anything useful.

    Like I say, you could probably do a lot worse than just grabbing a cheapo Palm Puck such as one like this:

    Genuine Retail HP Palm Touchstone Charging Dock for Pre Pixi Veer Pre2 PRE3 | eBay

    and then peeling the REAL 'Gecko' of it's base & re-sticking it to whatever else - TS2's in particular!

    Prepare for a careful fight with that stuff though.. I've already done it (in order to instead use double-sided sticky tape to in turn secure the Puck to a swivel-mount suction-cap base suitable for car dashboard/glass etc!) - and it IS *very* bloody sticky!

    It's not mine, but I did get a decent deal on a EU Pre2 from this seller who has been unloading buckets of webOS hardware for quite some time. They claim it is their last Touchstone 2:

    -Neat, but too spendy for me, I just hang my Pre3 on an unaltered touchstone 1 sideways (landscape)...
