Palm Touchstone ship date change backs June 7 launch

Palm Touchstone June 7

A change in Best Buy's ship date for the Palm Pre's Touchstone charger has provided additional support for the actual phone's increasingly corroborated June 7th release date. Once listed only as having a $70 price, the power add-on is now said by Engadget to have been given a June 7th in-stock date and is therefore likely to ship at the same time as the phone itself. The price remains the same.

The Touchstone is unique among cellphone chargers in its role as an official inductive charger. By using a special battery cover on the Pre as well as magnets, the device can supply power without having to use cables or a special dock. Owners can then more easily grab the phone or put it into landscape mode to watch movies.

Stock Palm Pre units will have a more conventional charger out of the box.
