Wireless charging might come with Samsung Galaxy S III out of the box

wireless charging a standard feature for the device, right out of the box. The most interesting part of the speculation is that the phone won't even have to sit on a charger to work as the charger would power up the battery at a distance of 1 to 2 meters from the charging base.
This would obviously be an improvement over what Palm offered as an accessory with the Palm Pre, which was one of the first handsets to offer wireless charging. While the Pre's wireless charger required you to change the back cover on the phone, there is no word on whether that would be necessary with the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Pre had to sit on top of the Touchstone base in order to recharge. With the ability to charge from a distance of up to 2 meters, this is probably a proprietary method to Samsung. The latter is said to be still deciding whether or not to offer the technology right out of the box, but that could raise the price of the phone. Word is that even if it is not a standard accessory, the Korean based manufacturer would offer it as a paid extra.

I was thinking the same thing. If it can charge wireless, how much radiation is this thing emitting, receiving?

I hope this is true and again...that VZW doesn't hold out on us three Galaxy S's in a row! (They crippled the first one so yeah, that counts too!). Don't screw with the RAM, don't swap the chip, and in the name of ALL THINGS HOLY PLEEEEASE!!!!!!! ... Don't put bing on it!

Highly anticipating the entire war between the next-gen iPhone and the GSIII. It'll be like Cena vs. The Rock, but the only difference is that it'll be f**king real! Gimme a Hell Yeah! :D

I hope these rumors stop I don't want the SGS3 to get all hyped up to let people down when the phone is released with specs less than what the rumors made it out to be like the iphone 4s was.

If you have to keep you phone so close to the charging station, then what is the point of wireless charging other than the ease of not having to actually plug in the microUSB. At least with the cord I can still hold it where I want to.
