Samsung lifts cover off official Galaxy S III accessories: impresses with Wireless Charging Kit
The Samsung Galaxy S III has finally seen its long awaited official debut, but what’s an Android flagship without a couple of accessories to style it up for “humans” and add some extra functionality? Samsung brought a few of them at its London event today and the most impressive one is definitely the wireless charger a la Palm’s TouchStone dock.

But there’s plenty more accessories. Here’s what Samsung says will accompany the S III on store shelves:

- a flip cover, 
- battery-charging stand, 
- spare battery, 
- car dock, 
- "metallic docking stand," 
- HDMI adapter.

What caught our eye most is the Wireless Charging Kit. We know it uses resonance techology, a first for a mobile phone and while we don’t have further details, cutting the cords is an initiative we can only welcome.

Also, Samsung is pushing its AllShare wireless service for pushing music out to external devices with an AllShare Cast Dongle.

One of the best designed accessories is the S Pebble, an MP3 player that should somehow function in concert with the Galaxy S III, but again we’re scarce on details yet. Check out the pictures below to get an idea about the upcoming accessories.

S III is nice enough, I guess. Still, I'll wait until they put all these features and much more into the Galaxy Note 2.

These pictures are more confusing than helpful.

These pics are stupid! They don't show anything at all. I think the flip cover is a normal case you'd see for a smartphone, just covering the back, but then has a thin, hinged door that folds across the front and latches shut to protect the whole phone.

I was thinking the same thing about the flip screen cover thing. I saw someone with it on theor galaxy note and it looks really cool.

The battery charging station will also be a plus since its nice to have a spare battery. I was so happy when i saw that the phone have a removable battery. Good decision Samsung!
