    Last fall, Nokia released its first Windows 8 tablet, the Lumia 2520.

    If you've never used wireless charging, you're missing out, and you just can't understand how convenient it is. Every time you need to charge your device, you've got to have a cord plugged into an electrical outlet (or a portable battery).
