Powermat to release OEM solution in 2011

Powermat to release OEM solution in 2011
Powermat has new mats on the way, but most exciting is their plan for OEM wireless charging solutions. They had already announced their OEM efforts, but now we know we can expect them some time in 2011.

"We are looking into putting the technology into phones but it is a complex process," explained a Powermat spokesperson. The technology would allow use of the inductive charging technology, without having to use a special case.

The spokesperson went on to explain that "Each phone has different charging needs so the sooner we get hold of a handset, the quicker we can come to market with a product."

Powermat seems to be calling OEMs to attention, eager to begin work on some integrated prototypes. Though wireless charging hasn't been integrated since the Palm Pre's Touchstone, the technology still earns a lot of interest. If the technology is adopted at the OEM level, induction charging might become the new standard.
