New Sony wireless tech to cut charge time in half, coming in 2014

The Nikkei is also reporting that it was Sony's semiconductor division that took the lead with the development and is already planning on applying the new goodie into the integrated circuits that control charging. In other words, don't be too surprised if we see Sony's Xperia line add another ace in its sleeve, starting next year.
The media corporation also added that Sony is not alone in this – local electronic parts manufacturer Rohm has also developed a 10-15 watts chips that are expected to be integrated in Qi-compatible chargers and smartphones at around the same time as Sony's. This likely indicates that this particular niche of technology is on the verge of entering the next generation of wireless charging capabilities, and this sounds pretty exciting (though not as exciting as what Samsung is allegedly working on).

Yes it sounds pretty exciting... Now phones will charge within half time of current.

The LG G2 almost cut that already with Quickcharge 2. Not wireless though - qualcomm.com/chipsets/quick-charge. And goes about 2 days of moderate use "Just how fast is Qualcomm Quick Charge? See how Quick Charge 1.0 and 2.0 compare against conventional USB charging using a 3300mAh battery. Conventional Charge Quick Charge 1.0 Quick Charge 2.0 25% Charge 60 minutes 18 minutes 12 minutes 50% Charge 120 minutes 48 minutes 24 minutes 75% Charge 192 minutes 78 minutes 42 minutes 100% Charge 270 minutes 144 minutes 96 minutes"

Why not having both simultaneously? Isn't it great to make every aspects of phones better at the same time?

You can't have that because the second they make the battery bigger, they add more specs to win that spec race while negating the battery advantage. If you could have the Note 3's batter in an S3 it would be amazing, but then we'd probably demand faster phones.

Too bad sony doesn't release CDMA phones in america. They really do seem to have some nice tech.
