Oh yes, an HTC EVO has been modded with the inductive charging coil ripped from the still beating heart of a Palm Pre.

General Mobile -- maker of the DSTL1 dual-SIM Android phone -- has always walked a fine line between KIRF and originality with its phones, and its latest batch is no different.

As much as we love those guys and gals over at Will It Blend?, we couldn't help but cringe each time they "dissected" any given gadget. The cautious cats over at iFixit, however, are more our style.

We're not sure what good the Touchstone inductive-charging dock and rubberized back cover will do you without an actual, you know, Pre, but it looks like at least one Sprint store is selling the things early -- and for just $50 instead of the rumored $70, to boot.
