Fulton Innovation, a pioneer of wireless charging, is no stranger to showing off their tech at CES. This year, though, they've got something a little unusual – a prototype technology that allows a tablet to charge a phone wirelessly.
It looks relatively simple, but there are a few rules – both devices can charge using the Qi standard, and the tablet can charge any Qi-compatible phone. You won't be able to use the tablet while it charges another device, though.
At first blush, the tablet/phone charging duo seems to have limited application – after all, you'd need to stop using your tablet for quite a while, just to get a little more juice into your phone.
Despite the fact that Samsung has said almost nothing about the upcoming Galaxy SIII, the rumor mill is churning so hard it threatens to break free from its foundation. The latest rumor about Sammy's upcoming flagship is pretty great – DDaily, a Korean IT news publication, is reporting (via anonymous sources) that Samsung's Galaxy SIII may have a "secret weapon" – a built-in inductive charger.
While the Galaxy SIII wouldn't be the first device to come standard with inductive charging (remember Palm's Touchstone?), DDaily reports that Samsung's wireless charging plans go a step further – evidently, the SIII wouldn't even need to be touching the charging mat to begin charging.
