was thinking of doing the same, but my current phone has been going strong for 2 years and the usb slot is still fine.
My USB slot seems finicky when charging. Sometimes says USB charging, sometimes says AC even though it's always plugged into the wall. I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software issue, but it definitely seems loose.
Ugh. As an SDer it pains me to spend $70 on this (Tax + shipping). However I have been waiting so long it was the high limit I promised to myself on what I would spend on it looking at other Qi chargers on the market currently at MSRP.
They sold new for $50 at Verizon stores but I called a few stores and had them check inventory and they were all sold out.
Also Touchstone fans, Mathias Duarte used to work for Palm and he so "took" the ideas from the Palm days and brought them to Google. The multi-tasking we now have on Android is clearly reminiscent from WebOS and the Orb charger here looks so much like the TouchStone. There's no other wireless charger on the market that even closely resembles this design.
Anyway, got one. Glad he works for Google now. Things don't look so damn ugly like it did back in the Gingerbread days. Thank you Duarte.
