Spec for Wireless Charging to Be Set Within 6 Months
Jan 9, 2010, 5:32 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The Wireless Power Consortium has indicated that it will have a standardized specification set for wireless power within the next six months. Wireless charging is used by devices such as the Palm Pre and Pixi with the Touchstone charger. It uses induction to transfer electricity from a mat to a properly equipped phone or other device. The device can be placed on or removed from the mat at will, without requiring users to plug and unplug them. Having a standard in place will make it easier for phone makers to develop products using the technology and ensure compatibility across a range of devices.

This does nothing for those of us that USE the phone... How can you use voice and data while this the phone on the mat?...

Nikola dreamed of having Giant towers that would broadcast electricity... Now we are doing everything possible to make this a viable option 120 years later.
touchstone and powermat really arent wireless charging..
car charger would be nice!
it' hard to plug in and charge while driving.
I was thinking that too, as long as they do those non slip tray thingie things. Side benefit is it would be way safer then trying to plug in when driving.
