    I sure hope so. I thought it was rumored to have it, I haven't followed it closely enough to know more

    Well, the leaked pics don't seem to show any charging contacts at all. We can only hope!

    does wireless charging waste more energy? it seems unenvironmentally friendly if it does.

    Personally, I would rather see charging contacts or the playbook magnetic connector rather than wireless charging since they offer much clearer benefits than not having to plug in a device to charge it.

    No, that thing is pointless. If your battery is about to run out and you get a call how do you charge it and answer the phone at the same time? Are you supposed to take it off charge every time you need to use it?

    My opinion: pointless.

    Excellent point. I agree with this. Just another one of those oh so cool yet absolutely pointless things everybody wants because somebody's got it. It would make the device more expensive with little to no benefit.

    I do believe we have seen the set with a standard microUSB charging port, which is also necessary for connection to a computer, so I don't expect them to deviate from the standard, at this point, or soon.

    i disagree. sometimes we can be lazy and find it cumbersome to plug the cable in to charge. with wireless charging, it just rest the phone on the charger when not in use and it will never run out of juice.

    also, a great nighttime accessory for those of us who like to charge our phones at night and use it occasionally when we get up to check the time. reply emails etc.

    hopefully that is a glimpse into the future.. i would love to see tables at a cafe doubling as huge wireless charging docks for our devices.

    +1 on charging contacts so it can be placed on a dock.

    What you describe sounds more like a charging cradle, much more useful on the bedside table then a mat to rest your phone on. Oh, and don't you think coffee is expensive enough? Lol, if they get charging tables watch your coffee price rise.

    Well, I also find wireless charging great and I'd love to have it. If it's useless for someone, it doesn't mean than it useless for everybody.

    Not really. If you could just lay your phone on your desk while you were at work and it would charge, or your car had a charging station built in (Toyota is doing this) then your phone would stay charged longer and easier.

    Plus, buying a JBL PowerUp speaker would make sense. While you play music the phone could charge. Very cool and something I personally would use.

    Ok that's cool and all but you would have to have these everywhere for it to be useful. That means you would need a charging station everywhere you go just for it to be viable. Maybe one day it will be really useful but right now it is just a luxury. I'm sure if you wanted something like the JBL speaker (which is a nice idea I guess) you would have to buy the charge piece separately for any and each device that doesn't have it built in. How many devices have it built in right now? I'm curious.

    Another note: Yes this is easier for charging. But your comparing laying your phone down on a special pad vs. plugging in a wall charger. You save yourself... what? a few seconds perhaps?

    Yes so lazy... can't... reach... charger...

    It will be something in the future I am sure. But it doesn't need to be built in right now it makes no sense. If you want it badly hopefully some company like duracell will make an adaptor to use with their charge pads and you can go spend your money on that.

    What I want is true wireless charging. The term has been hijacked and lost it's real meaning. Wireless charging is like entering a room and suddenly your device is being charged. I'm surprised none of this was demoed again this year at CES 2013. I really hope it wasn't snuffed out....

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    This will be a standard in ten years,right now it isn't very useful and widespread enough to be a must have for a platform launch.

    Doesn't this go in "news and rumours" not in "blackberry 10 OS"?

    I'd love wireless charging and NFC sync / backup.
