I'm thinking about upgrading from my Palm Pre to the Evo 4G and had a question about some of the accessories.
I purchased the Sprint branded car charger back when I got my Pre, is it compatible with the Evo or will I need to get a new charger?
I'm also looking at recommendations for screen protector and/or case. I had a Zagg Invisible Shield for my Pre and was very happy with its quality, any reason I should think different for the Evo's version?
Lastly, I liked the touchstones from Palm especially since the little door on the Pre was a real pain. Is the cradle "worth it" or just a nice gimmicky thing to have?

I had the Pre, also, and the EVO has been awesome.
My car charger from my Pre works fine, and both my Pre and Evo have had the invisibleshield with no problems.
I have a cheap $25 dock from Ebay with the extra battery slot, and it works great also, though it is not as nice as having the touchstone. In fact, the touchstone is the only thing I miss from my Pre!

If you absolutely have to have something like the touch stone you can get the powermat. It's not as elegant and makes it difficult to find a case that'll fit (especially without modification) but it's like the touch stone.
As for cases many people have different preferences. I don't like bulky cases (most of the time) so the case-mate barely there case works well for me. If you need more protection than that then the Active case gekko posted is good, and so is the tough case from case mate.
For screen protectors I personally like anti-glare screen protectors. Whether or not you need one has been debated endlessly, so I won't go there. Just my opnion.Forum Rules & Guidelines -- CLICK HERE
