When it comes to charging wires really suck. I think we can all agree that it’s much more convenient after a long day to just flop your smartphone onto a charge plate and walk off than having to dig around for your cable and plug your phone it. Powermat has been offering systems for a long time now that allow you to put a new case or battery door in some instances on your smartphone and then charge your phone using a mat and no wires.
If you have plans to get the cool new T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide smartphone when it lands you may be glad to hear that Powermat has plans to offer its wireless charging system specifically for the new smartphone as soon as the device launches. The Powermat system of the myTouch 4G Slide will not be a case, but a new battery door that looks and feels like the original battery cover.
The downside to having a battery door system like this is that they don’t work with a case installed. I would like to see a version of this charge system for the phone that is integrated somehow into a case for those like me that tend to drop their smartphone at some point. Pricing on the system for the myTouch Slide 4G isn’t announced. The phone is up for pre-order now for under $100.[via Reuters]
