    Sorry if it doesn't really belong in the 900 section, but saw this and thought it was worth sharing: Nokia Lumia 910 to get wireless charging? | Stuff magazine

    Guardian: Nokia design chief hints at Lumia phones with NFC and wireless charging | Technology | guardian.co.uk

    I guess this would be relevant to the 900, as well. :)

    I think that wireless charging is a niche thing right now. It's not exactly efficient.

    Maybe in the future it will be better. Though it would be nice to not have to worry about breaking micro-USB ports.

    It would probably work just as well popping it in the microwave for a couple of minutes.

    Off to try, back soon!

    Ow!, Ow! Yikes the phone's hot.

    Aw it doesn't work. :( Oh well, I tried. :)

    Wait.. No USB ports? What about syncing stuff like videos (music videos, movies, etc)? WP7 is not set up to those wirelessly. What about OS updates/upgrades?

    We won't have to worry about it for a while.

    It was something someone mentioned as a generality when talking about the future. And then now everyone is running with it.

    That can work to your advantage at times. When a company keeps getting asked about a feature that everyone is expecting, it put more pressure on them to deliver the feature for fear of the product being percieved as inadiquate. Everyone, even bean counters want to meet expectations. The thought of not meeting them can bring your perception down, even if the expectations aren't all that realistic at times

    Especially when you (I) seem to get overly excited about anything Nokia Lumia 900/910 related. :D

    Indeed, I'm counting down the days to MWC for all the new goodies news.

    (It's 26 days by the way) :P

    It would be nice to see all devices have wireless charging built in and be able to use the same charging pad. No more worrying about if you have the right cables. If your friend comes over and wants to charge his phone, no problem, just place it on the charger.

    Thinking even further ahead, once many phones have wireless charging built in, places like airports and restaurants could have like charging stations built in to workstations or tables. Put your phone on the special pad, and it'll charge. No more pulling out cables or hunting for wall outlets.

    It may be 25 days now to MWC, but look on the bright side...

    If CES is any indication, we've only got 14 or so more days to go before all the leaks start pouring out!
