PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Because of this whole Easter thing, news is kind of slow today. So, yes, we are going to talk about a charger and a rumoured release date for the Palm Pre. The Palm Touchstone is a charger that uses magnets to keep the phone in place, while charging it through induction; there's no plugs or anything. Palm has let out more details on this new type of charger, and there have also been a number of hints that the Pre might be released on Queen's Day (April 30 for all of our non-Dutch readers).

Induction efficieny

How efficient is induction? It would be a shame if millions of phones started using this simply because it was "cool". Longer charge times, more fossil fuels burnt. Sounds like a big negative to me.
