With wireless charging gaining momentum it has somewhat surprisingly become strongly associated with Nokiaâ€™s Lumia range. Nokia is taking full advantage of this by touting this feature in their latest #Switch comic, telling readers their phone has a life of partying ahead of it if it were not tied down by wires.
The Qi standard is gaining momentum at present, with the new Samsung Galaxy S 4 rumoured to feature the technology, but only as an add-on. This will however likely increase the range of Qi accessories available to everyone, and also solidify the standard against competition by the Powermat consortium, which has backing by Google and AT&T.
Hopefully this will mean our current investment in wireless charging accessories will be usable in the next generation of devices also.
