    A new rumor about Samsung's Galaxy SIII has surfaced and it might be the most interesting one yet. According to Korean site DDaily the new Galaxy SIII will be equipped with wireless charging capabilities out of the box. If that wasn't enough to spark your interest, the website goes on to specify that the range of the wireless charging station is between 1 and 2 meters which is a vast improvement over most wireless charging options currently available. Once again this is only a rumor and should be taken as such. We'll let you know if this rumor is confirmed, until then let us know your thoughts in the forums.

    awesome. I can see car makers integrating that technology in the future now too. Never have to plug it in, just charges in your pocket, so convenient

    Yeah, convenient, but who wants to drive around inside a large electromagnet where the driver is the rod inside the coil?

    Personally we're all bombarded by enough electromagnetic radiation without riding inside a magnetic field.

    I thought about that. But I figure the R&D departments of these massive companies looked into it further than me (I'm not being a smartass, I seriously thought the same thing). Besides, when you're the only one without one, you'll be in so many of those magnetic fields that belong to the owners of phones that are using it that I don't think you'll get much choice

    Verizon will be dumb not to take this phone. Sadly, I don't think they will due to it not being built for LTE. Awesome feature though.

    I'd be shocked if this didn't come to Verizon. Samsung stated that they finally have a Exynos that plays nice with LTE. Just don't expect this phone on Big Red until September at the earliest.

    I hope its earlier than that.. but either way, I'll be picking it up to play around with it. If it lives up to the hype anyway. :). Glad to here that about the processors though.

    I don't even want to say it, but I'm going to. I may go back to AT&T for this phone.

    Is it just me or does this sound like not a big deal? Even with 1-2 meter wireless charging that's the normal length of a standard USB cable. If you can only stay within 1-2 meters of the charging station, what's the difference with having the phone plugged in? Also, considering energy cost is much less using a cable then this sort of wireless charging.

    No cords my friend. That's what everyone wants. And the fact that you won't even need a mat is even better.

    This will be first-gen charging tech which is only going to get better and better. In a year or two you'll probably be able to charge from anywhere in your house.
