Verizon Pushing Wireless Charging with 4G Phones
Mar 22, 2011, 8:13 PM by Rich Brome
Verizon Wireless has requested - if not required - that phone makers offer Qi wireless charging for most or all of its new LTE 4G phones, Phone Scoop has confirmed. HTC and LG will make Qi-enabled back covers available as accessories for the Thunderbolt and Revolution, respectively. LG today also announced a charging pad, which, since it uses Qi, will work with non-LG phones. Fulton Innovation - which manufactures Qi circuitry - confirmed that "two other manufacturers" (presumably Samsung and Motorola) will announce similar solutions soon for their LTE phones. According to Fulton, some 4G LTE phones coming this year will have Qi built right into the phone, made possible by placing the necessary circuit on the main circuit board, saving space. Qi - pronounced "chee" - is an industry standard for inductive wireless charging. Energizer is also showing off Qi chargers at CTIA
