Lumia 920 to feature a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 32GB of storage

Nokia's press event for its Windows Phone 8-based smartphones is just a few days away, but the information leaks continue to steadily drip. The latest round of leaks involve the Lumia 920, which The Verge reports will include 32GB of storage and an 8MP camera which will carry "PureView" branding. For those that are interested, a 1.3MP front-facing camera is also included.
 
Additional specs that were revealed include a 4.5" display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM.
 
Perhaps the most interesting detail that was revealed, however, is that the Lumia 920 will support wireless (inductive) charging via the Qi wireless standard.
 
Late last week, Intel announced that it was working with IDT to bring wireless charging support to Ultrabooks by 2014.

It is more of a problem as I see it.
There are times when you are in middle of a conversation and battery is running low. You can plug in the charger and continue talking. Although with limited mobility.
No such option for this wireless charger. I am sure there would be a wired option as well.

So there isn't really a problem :-)

For now I see the wireless charge thing as a gimmick, but if it takes hold I can imagine furniture with integrated charging surface. It's a small thing but rather than plugging in my phone to charge it could be neat to just drop it on table.

If the wireless charging base acts as a battery and you can charge your phone with it not being attached to a wall, I can see this being extremely useful.

Would that be a rechargeable battery?

that's the micro-USB option - they all have it and will continue to have it. Need it for your car or your office.

This would be great on my nightstand - no more fumbling to plug it in at night (continually forget to plug it in before I turn out the light. . .doh) - just set it on the block.

Have any other companies come out with 1st party wireless charging solutions aside from Palm, and now Nokia? Just curious.

Wireless works pretty good and cheap. They have them for console controllers (Wii anyway) Paid $20 for Energizer brand which includes the base and 2 battery packs.

What would be needed is a wireless charging standard...
