Rumours, Rumours, Rumours!

There’s more than I can count about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III, which ones can you believe?
Buzz wrote a post a few days ago responding to some leaked photos and rumours, quashing some and discussing others.

The latest in the rumour mill is that the SGSIII will have wireless charging

Like all rumours, take it with a grain (or spoonful) of salt, HOWEVER…
To add some credibility to the rumour, Samsung have registered a patent on magnetic resonance charging which will allow devices to be charged at 1 – 2 meters away from the base station charger.

Truth or Fiction?
Will it work?

Only time will tell.

Here’s another … The Next Galaxy SIII to have lasers and Holographic display, but unfortunately Teleportation will come only with Galaxy SIV …

Hopefully it’ll be coated with liquipel.

I’d say quite unlikely due to non-contact wireless power being such a new technology – but I guess it is possible

Given what they are already packing into the 8mm chassis I doubt they are fitting a power coil or whatever in there also.

 Palm Pre has wireless charging and they were released ages ago.

You should probably read what I wrote and watch the video.

I said “non-contact” – so I meant the 1-2 metre away through-the-air charging.

I know inductive charging already exists but you have to put your phone either on the charging pad or very near to it.

I was questioning the ability for Samsung to charge a device while it is 1-2m away from the charging pad.

Watching the video to see what I mean.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that patent is actually for wireless powered TVs so you can wall-mount without cables

Isn’t that called Wi-Di or Wireless HDMI? It already exists.

Man, SGS2 kills your DHD, and you’re not sure about trading it for a SGS3? DHD was the 3rd Android I owned, it was OK, but had it’s flaws, I traded it on an Optimus 2X and even that was about 5 phones ago. The SGS2 is a quantum leap from the DHD, let alone the SGS3!!

One to two METRES away. If that’s true, that is a hell of a range!
