Qi wireless charging standard finalized, XDA says maybe you don’t have to wait

The Wireless Power Consortium, consisting of heavyweights such as Duracell, Nokia and Phillips have finalized their Qi wireless charging standard for interoperability, meaning soon you will be able to charge any Qi-certified battery on any Qi-certified charger, bringing the wireless dream that much closer.

XDA Developers member Carnivore9 however could not wait for Qi-compatible batteries for his HTC HD2 to arrive, and inspired by an HTC Evo mod he ripped apart a Palm Pixi TouchStone back and forced wireless charging on his poor HTC HD2. 

Fortunately his mod is non-destructive, but I think I will wait just a bit longer for the official accessory to arrive ;)
