HTC ThunderBolt's back cover for wireless charging now visiting the FCC
The FCC received a visit from the back cover of the HTC ThunderBolt. You might think that the whole phone had already received FCC approval and you would be right-except for the fact that HTC is planning on revising the handset's cover to allow for wireless charging.

As we reported, LG has introduced a wireless charging pad that is expected to be available for its current smartphone lineup, and of course the Pre has been able to charge without wires since its launch in 2009.  Texas Instruments recently introduced a power receiver chip 80% smaller than the previous chip. The smaller size should make it easier for manufacturers to design wireless charging into their cell phone designs.

So far there is no word on pricing or a launch date for the HTC ThunderBolt's wireless charging package.
