You’d wonder what the secret is for wireless charging to become ubiquitous. Everything about it is cool, from the fact that you simply place your phone over the pad, to the fact that it’s a standard that works across platforms. Sadly the problem is that it hasn’t really taken off over the last couple of years, and Nokia is finally planning to do something about it.
The company’s VP of Nokia UK & Ireland, Conor Pierce has confirmed that it’ll start to push wireless charging seriously in the future, and that it’ll begin with the launch of the Nokia Lumia 930. In the past you had to buy the separate accessory, and given the fact that the phone already came with a traditional charger, it became pointless for many people to pay a lot of money for an added convenience that wasn’t really necessary.
We should expect to see more devices from Nokia, at least in the company’s flagship line-up including the technology out of the box, and hopefully we see other OEMs following the same path.
