The Palm Touchstone actually looks like a really innovative accessory. It's for the new Palm Pre smartphone. I think other companies can learn from this little piece of hardware that uses wireless charging via induction. Also, it holds the phone at a nice viewing angle via a magnetic contact (I hope that's not going to damage anything electronic). This is probably going to win some type of award for "engineering creativity." Who would have thought that a docking station for a mobile device could be so simple, yet so functional?
