nokia-n97Nokia let it be known that it is working on a wireless technology for recharging phones and other devices. The Palm Pre already has its Touchstone cordless dock, but Nokia takes that magnetic connection to a whole new level by eliminating the dock entirely.

The Nokia Research Centre project uses ambient electromagnetic radiation (AER), the radio wave-based technology that makes RFID tags work, and is expected to become available in 2013.

Phones would last longer between charges as well, since they could be receiving a constant trickle of power.
