Nokia confirms Qi standard Wireless Charging in Lumia 920

Lumia 920 Wireless Charging

The Lumia 920 was announced today at the Nokia Windows Phone 8 press conference in downtown Manhattan, New York. Among the specifications and features presented was wireless charging, which will please many who don't enjoy fiddling with USB cables.

This is a new feature to the Windows Phone platform that enables Lumia 920 owners to recharge their smartphone by simply resting it on top of a supported accessory. Nokia will be releasing its own charging units, including plastic mats and Fatboy pillow units.

Making use of the Qi standard, we'll likely see public charging stations / mats being used to top-up Windows Phones. Exciting times ahead. 

Check out our live blog and the Nokia feed for more details released today.

What I'd really like to see is wireless charging for the car. I'd love to have a charging station there. I'm always putting my Lumia 900 in my cup holder. I'd absolutely upgrade if all I had to do was place it in a location in my car and not have to plug in every time.
