Using a mobile phone for just making and receiving voice calls is a thing of the past. The mobile phone users are always keen on a device loaded with features. The possibilities that technological advancements bring our way are immense; for instance, imagine a scenario where users find a gadget that re-charges itself without the use of cables and wires.
The scenario may not be a far cry from reality, especially if one pauses to ponder over how rapidly technology has developed, making a mobile phone jump to a 'smartphone' in its wake.
Today, smartphones are used for voice calling as well as entertainment and informative purposes. The high usage of smartphones has even prompted manufacturers to boost the battery power in their devices.
Samsung is leading the race for iconic improvements and tech progression. Come September, its Galaxy S3 users may witness a wireless charging kit, suggests Techradar. The immediate thought which follows the news is whether Samsung will roll out the wireless charging kit to its other smartphones as well. Moreover, if Samsung is releasing a wireless charging kit, as indicated, then would its rivals also jump onto the bandwagon and take the wireless charging kits launch route as well?
"The costs, resources and management of multiple, incompatible power cords, bricks, etc. are already a nightmare for the typical user. WREL, in contrast to surface-based systems (-power pads), demonstrates wireless power transfer whose efficiency can be nearly independent of orientation, distance, and load over a wide range of operating conditions. This technology could allow people to cut that last cord," asserted the Intel Web site.
Recent rumors hint that Intel is developing ultrabooks and smartphones with built-in wireless charging capabilities.
In the last few years, the tech market has experienced a rise in the number of electronic devices. Most of these devices are powered by batteries which need to be recharged.
Will tech companies open up a new horizon and present the gizmo-savvy users with a simpler means to recharge gadgets? It is anybody's guess if wireless charging will eventually transform and redefine the manner in which we charge our gadgets.
