Samsung and Apple to both embrace wireless charging in 2013?
own internally developed wireless charging technology. It is uncertain whether the next version of the Apple iPhone will have this technology built in or if the phone's owners will have to purchase accessories that will attach to the device.
While other handset manufacturers like HTC, Nokia, Motorola, Sony and LG are already members of the Wireless Power Consortium, the expected success of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 (Samsung expects over 100 million to be sold in the first year), should help the Consortium become the standard for the industry beating out the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA).

I don't know how this is wireless if you place it on a device that has a power cord?

What do you expect it to magically pull electricity out of the cosmos? No wires plugged into phone=wireless. You know like your wireless router that has wires pugged into it.

He put a question mark at the end so I guess he was asking if he didn't know. he seems confused pretty much all around.

A phone that can recharge through solar energy is what we can call wireless charging.

Wireless QI charging rocks. Every smartphone/phablet should have this capability...

What's with the similar story following up on this one about wireless charging for the SGS IV and the iP5S with the header: "Bad Reporting Alert"?
That one just shows an error message...

It is the future of charging. I foresee a wireless future. And you thought Star Trek was just sci-fi BS. No friend, teleportation is real but only in its infancy.
