Apple applies for a wireless charging system
[Photos, Price & Specs] Samsung Officially announces Galaxy Note 5 with 4GB RAM and ultra-sleek body
Right after Samsung announced the wireless charger for the Galaxy S III, Apple today has filed a patent application for a Wireless Power Utilization. It's a wireless charging system that uses near-field magnetic resonance NFMR.
It is obviously an improvement over the current wireless charging technology which requires you to put your handset on a pad. We really haven't come that far since Palm introduced the Touchstone wireless charging system when it announced the Palm Pre back at CES 2009, so this would seem like a great idea on its face. But there is a catch and it is a big one.
