DROID DNA Wireless Charging Dock hands-on

DROID DNA Wireless Charging Dock hands-on

The wireless charging pad that's made specifically for the HTC DROID DNA was revealed today a bit more silently than the smartphone, mainly because it's not manufactured by HTC - and because it's not really all that new. This LG-made device will be appearing at Verizon at the same time as the DROID DNA itself for a cool $59.99 USD. This device is rather large, eclipsing the DNA by quite a bit - in other words, you'll have a hard time missing it.

Those of you hoping to take part on the deal Nokia is offering up with some of their new Lumia models, that being a free wireless charger with purchase, will be glad to know that the official claim page is up now.

Qualcomm Halo: Inside the tech of the world’s largest wireless car charging trial

Qualcomm Halo: Inside the tech of the world’s largest wireless car charging trial

Wireless charging has made headlines in recent weeks, but a new Qualcomm Halo trial kicking off in the UK is targeting the devices that live in your garage rather than in your pocket. Just as Google's Nexus 4 and Nokia's Lumia 920 each support wireless charging, rejuicing via simple desk pads rather than the fumble of slotting in a microUSB cable, so chip and wireless specialist Qualcomm sees the future of electric and hybrid urban mobility being wire-free. There's a big difference, though, between a fifty buck charging plate for your phone and a way of cutting the cord for electric vehicles and potentially opening up the road as a dynamic power highway. SlashGear caught up with Qualcomm and some select partners to find out what makes Halo special, and why it's just as much at home on a 200mph racing car as it is your city runabout.

If Google’s Nexus line gets wireless charging, will Apple follow suit?

If Google’s Nexus line gets wireless charging, will Apple follow suit?

When a major competitor releases a hero product to the market that they intend to keep around for some time to come, you as a tech company have an opportunity - for Google, that opportunity exists in the absence of wireless battery charging in the iPhone 5. An image has been making the rounds today that very much appears to be approximately half of a Nexus Q - but is being called a wireless charging unit for the Nexus 4. The Nexus 4 is almost certainly going to be revealed on Monday by Google at their big Android event [we'll be there!] as the same unit that's been shown in a rather giant amount of leaked images over the past few weeks - with wireless charging via this pad, has Google suddenly one-upped Apple, not to mention Nokia?

Why the iPhone 5 needs no NFC, wireless charging, or localized haptic feedback

Why the iPhone 5 needs no NFC, wireless charging, or localized haptic feedback

It's time to have a chat about what the iPhone 5 didn't bring to the table this week now that the dust has settled - somewhat - after the big Apple reveal. Two features you might be wondering about - and one that you might never have heard of - for the iPhone 5 that we've had questions about are these: NFC, Wireless Charging, and Localized Haptic Feedback. We've discussed the first two extremely briefly right after the press conference was complete, while the third has still been weighing on our minds even without a lot of your questions for us on the device in the end.
