New Rebranded Touchstone Available!

The new HP Touchstone is now officially available from HP's website, and will soon be available elsewhere. It appears to have removed the Palm logo, and is now pure black.

They cost $50.00 each when ordered from HP's website, and charge touchstone-compatible webOS devices inductively -- by just setting it on the charger rather than mess with any cords.

Exhibition Mode - Time
WebOS 2.0 devices such as the Veer 4G or Pre 2 can automatically go into exhibition mode when placed on the charger, - which can show a variety of information ranging from just the time (Useful for an alarm clock), an agenda mode with your calendar info, to facebook and applications that also have exhibition features.

The phone will remember touchstones uniquely, so one touchstone can be programmed to be an alarm clock, while another can be set to be a photo slideshow.

Agenda View in landscape mode; Exhibition can
 be used in either portrait or landscape modes

  1. Wow, the more I read your blog the more I want a webOS phone. That's a really cool feature. Are you sure you don't work for HP?

  2. Looks really nice. I'm still happy with my Android though.

  3. Wow, that is awesome! I can't wait until inductive charging becomes mainstream.

  4. I wish more phones had something like the Touchstone

  5. Man this sucks. Sure it's out and all, but the veer was released for AT&T only.. What about us loyal Sprint fans!?

  6. It looks very great, gonna search more about it ;)

  7. Looks awesome, I like how clean the design is.

  8. That's a really nice device.
