Touchstone Tricks (PSA)

Rédigé par Dieter Bohn le Vendredi 31 Juillet 2009

The Touchstone is a wonderful little device.  It makes it dead-simple to keep your Pre topped off, so much so that I say it's worth it for every Pre owner to pick one up.  It's a bummer that getting it to operate in a car properly is so difficult (really, we don't think it's ready for the rigors of working in a car sitting in the July sun).  It's so convenient, we wonder if Palm made the door on the micoUSB port fiddly on purpose to drive people to the Touchstone.

Most people are aware that there are actually a couple little software features on the Pre that are related to the Touchstone.  I know I was, but I forgot about them today, so consider this post a public service announcement:

  • If your Pre is on the Touchstone and a call comes in, picking it up off the Touchstone automatically answers it.
  • If you are on a call, setting the Pre down on the Touchstone automatically converts it to speakerphone mode (unless you're using a wired or Bluetooth headset).
  • If you are on a call and the Pre is in speakerphone mode and sitting on the Touchstone, picking it up turns off speakerphone mode.

I present this PSA because today a call came in.  I picked the Pre up off the Touchstone to see who it was and said - out loud - "Wonderful.  I guess I have to take this."  Take a moment to re-read bullet point one, above.  ...Oops. Luckily, my caller took it in good humor (I hope).

Any other Touchstone Tips and Tricks you folks noticed?  Anybody else been tricked by the Touchstone?
