Palm Pre selling well from O2 Wireless carrier 02 has noted today that the Palm Pre smartphone is selling very well in the UK and Germany where it launched last week.
"We've sold more Palm Pre alone today that we normally sell total devices on a Friday," added a spokesperson, via TechRadar. "And one in two customers is buying a Touchstone charger, with the majority buying two."

The Touchstone charging kit, which retails for about $70 USD here in the States, is a dock that requires a "Touchstone" back cover for your device. If you own the dock and the special cover, you can simply place the device on the device and it will magnetically snap together and begin charging, allowing for wireless charging.

O2 did not give any exact figures however, but analysts are claiming the iPhone 3GS likely outsold the Pre in the regions by over five-to-one ratio.

Wireless charging is finally happening huh? Now we just need to get rid of the special cases, docks, and then we have a real product. As for the phone, not every surprising, it sold well here too.
