The European version of the LG G2 to come with a separate case that supports wireless charging

As one of the most anxiously awaitedsmartphones accordingto many, the news that wirelesscharging for the LG G2 will be a Verizon-exclusive sent a ratherunpleasant jolt down fans' spines. If you find yourself within thoseranks and live in Europe,rest assured that LG seems conscious of the unfair divide and hastaken some steps to resolve this.

Reachingout to Pocket-lintonThursday, an LG spokesperson has confirmed that while the Europeanversion of the G2 won't have wireless charging built-in, a separatecase will be made available that will support it. Although, strictlyspeaking, unconfirmed, we do expect the caseto make use of the Qi standard, just like the Verizon version.Pricing and availability are similarly unknown.

Obviously, this is a compromise and not as optimal a solution, butit's better than nothing, granted LG manages to come up with anappealing design for the accessory. Given that most of you wouldprobably opt for some external protection of LG's new beast, then itcertainly would make sense to pick one, should you find yourselffancying wireless charging.

Wait, wireless charging was is VZW exclusive? Thats so stupid.....that isn't enough of a feature on any phone to make me want to switch carriers for it. I am sick and tired of all this "Carrier Exclusive" crap, nobody is going to switch to a carrier just b/c they have a phone with different colors or because it has wireless charging. All it ends up doing is hurting consumers! - End rant.

I'll rather have a replaceable battery instead. With my gaming and porn habit, the internal battery not last long. :D

if it aint Qi standard, i aint bothered. Plus, one suspects that the case will be ridiculously over priced.
