From what I gather, there is a bulge. The OP will be able to answer better though.

yeah, I second this question.. is there a bulge? is the wireless charging the same as wired charging speed?

Speed should be similar. That was one of Palm's selling points of the Touchstone to begin with.

The charging is as quick as by usb. Also, I tend to just leave the phone on the dock, as I can answer it just by picking it up.

The bulge is tiny, and if you weren't looking for it, you wouldn't notice it. BTW, I just tested the charging with a thicker TPU case, and it works!! It's a little more finicky about finding the sweet spot where charging activates, but only a little.

So you confirm no issues with the back cover fitting and staying on and it's not popping off? there is not much room in there, so just want to make sure that now in real world usage, your not noticing the cover coming off or any issues related to that?

I haven't had any problems. I keep a Rock Case on my phone, but even with the case off, there's no popping off.

It's just the stock blue cover, which is pretty shiny. Artifact of photograph.
