Samsung Galaxy S III wireless charging kits now arriving at Verizon stores
Thanks to a loyal reader of ours we now know that Verizon is getting a Samsung Galaxy S III charging kit of some kind. No, it is clearly not the official one, which the Korean company presented earlier this year, only to have its release delayed until September. We are dealing with a Verizon-branded charging station that should work with most phones that support wireless charging. The Galaxy S III back cover that needs to be purchased as well, however, is a genuine, Samsung-made product.

But before you head to your local Verizon store, allow us to tell you how much the whole set will cost you. According to our source, the charging station is listed for $70, but has been marked down to $50. The Galaxy S III back cover that supports wireless charging will set you back another $39. That's $89 for the entire kit, which is not exactly astronomical, but can't be called cheap either. In case you are still interested, we would recommend calling in advance just to make sure that your Verizon store has the kit in stock.

Thanks for sending this in!
