Wireless charging is the next mobile trend

Nokia was first with its Lumia 920. Samsung Galaxy S3 finally seems to get it, almost one year after they launched the phone and promised a wireless charging solution. You can put your mobile phone on the table and it charges automatically. This will be a reality not only for Nokia owners in the near future. Both Apple and Samsung have big plans for wireless charging on their top models for 2013, according to digitimes.com. Samsung Galaxy S4 will probably have a wireless charging solution delivered by The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Maybe the solution will not be intregrated. It is possible that they will go for the same solution as Nokia used on Lumia 820. That means that you can replace the original back cover with a more expensive cover. Apple plans to launch their very own solution soon. Nexus 4 already has wireless charging integrated.

After almost a solid year of keeping its customers waiting, it looks like Samsung is finally gearing up for a North American release of the wireless charging product it promised way back at the Galaxy S III announcement. That’s a good thing, and we’re eagerly awaiting some hands-on time with the official inductive-charging pad … but we’re not exactly the patient sort.

Fortunately, the popularity of the Galaxy S III, combined with an abundance of old Palm charging accessories, means a wide array of mods are available that allow users to bring inductive charging to their Samsung smartphones in exchange for very little time and money. User “android94301” over at XDA-Developers did just that several months back, posting a shopping list and step-by-step tutorial for those who wanted to give it a go.

Watch the video below for an up-close look at our experience porting Palm’s old wireless charging technology to our Verizon-branded Galaxy S III, and leave a comment describing your tips and tricks for this cheap and fun hardware modification.
