Samsung Galaxy S III Might Come Standard With Wireless Charging

DDaily is reporting that the SGSIII might well have a proprietary inductive charging system -- a la on the now-defunct Palm line of phones -- included as the stock back. (Or it might be optional. DDaily's not sure.) It also would have some sort of magic that would let it charge without actually touching the charging pad. This isn’t just any wireless charging tech, mind you, allegedly it’s a technology developed by Samsung that allows you to charge the phone from as far as two meters away (6.5 feet). Seems pretty futuristic to us, considering that most “wireless” charging stations require a special battery case and charging mat, but a company named Fulton has already proved it is possible with its eCoupled technology. But we're still a long way out here, and there's a better than average chance that things will shift by the time anything's announced.
