Accessory maker Powermat today announced its Gen 2 line of wireless conductive chargers for a wide range of smartphones. Powermat says the new chargers are thinner than previous versions, and support iPhone 4, HTC EVO, HTC HD2, Motorola Droid X, Blackberry, Bold 9700 series, Blackberry Curve 8500/9300 series, and the Nokia N97. All but the iPhone will use specially designed battery covers to replace the original. For the iPhone, Powermat has developed a thin conductive receiver that doubles as a full case for the device. In conjunction with the new devices, Powermat also announced the Powermat Portable 2x Rechargeable Mat, which has its own 7200mAh lithium polymer battery. This means the mat can charge up to two devices even when it is not plugged in.

Headline Error?

Powermat's charging technology is based on an inductive coupling between the charging matt and the adapter on the back of the phone, not a conductive link:

The first company to not only perfect inductive-based wireless charging but to then bring it to consumers in a widely available, meaningful way via mainstream retail channels, Powermat pioneered the wireless charging category and currently leads the market in device compatibility, retail availability, technological advancement, consumer experience and brand.

I don't see anything related to the release of the Generation 2 product that indicates a change in charging technology.
