Wireless Charging Bold-Style

The feature of the Palm Pre that immediately piques my interest was the wireless charging via the Touchstone. And even when my husband pointed out that it was the same technology from his decade old electric toothbrush, I was still in awe. However, in my brief time with the Pre I didn't get the Touchstone but I did read some of the concerns in the PreCentral forums: overheating, etc.
That's when I realized that my Blackberry Bold had been doing a form of wireless charging for the many months I've had it. The charging pod lets you drop your Bold into it and charge via the contacts on the side of the phone. And at $15 a pop with no special battery cover needed I can afford to have one just about everywhere!
