Amazon's latest Fire HD 10 tablets are now finally optimized for Zoom

Amazon's tablets aren't meant to set the world on Fire, but they're probably some of the most popular on the planet thanks to low price tags and integration with the company's retail empire.

Xiaomi teases Mi Air Charge, its true wireless charging solution

Wireless charging isn't quite as convenient as it sounds. It still needs the phone to be placed in a dock or on a mat, or in the case of Apple's new MagSafe solution, basically tethered to a cable.

OnePlus was extremely late to the wireless charging party, as last year's OnePlus 8 Pro was the company's first phone to support the feature. It could wirelessly charge at up to 30W, the same speed as a wired connection, but only if you had the separate Warp Charge dock.

The Universal Stylus Initiative want to change that with a plan to enable wireless charging for USI styluses — using the NFC technology found on many modern smartphones.
