This was pointed out to me at Palm Infocenter as being used by the Palm reps demonstrating the Pre.
People who say the enclosed battery of the iPhone is a shortcoming are simply mad. There are many clip-on batteries that can provide full-day use with all radios running. Palm had to go with a removable battery because the form factor of the Pre won’t work with iPhone-like battery sleds.
I don’t know if I’ll need a spare battery, but this design is clever, with the charger also acting as a battery carrying case.
