• Palm Pre Teardown

    Quote from RolfB:

    Does anybody know what the copper coil does that is on the back panel? See photo above (step 23) lower right corner.

    It is the inductive charger for the pre called the touchstone charger. The phone is held on to the touchstone by means of the four magnets around the coil. When in place, inductive charging occurs. In other words the phone gets charged without plugging in cables.
