    BlackBerry has taken off from where Palm left off really well and done some great things since then.but has largely ignored one of my favorite features of the Palm Pre series. Wireless charging. BlackBerry has been VERY half hearted about this, the Z30 supported it BUT ONLY on Verizon. Don't think the flagship Passport has it at all. Thing is BlackBerry's of old had contact charging which is only a step or so away from full wireless. So why the hell aren't they doing this, its not even hard any more with the standards we have today.

    Ah so instead of Verizon getting the Wireless charging variant ATT did. Still sort of limp wristed and feels more driven by the carrier. Interesting that the Classic got it more widely.

    And yes Jaydee, Wireless charging does rock!

    Verizon did not get a Passport at all, with or without wireless charging.

    I think he was referring to when Verizon got the Z30 with its wireless charging capabilities.

    Yes. I do find it strange that this feature is on specific carriers though. Surely its more work to have 1 model with and 1 without.

    Don't know about the QI but Palm's old touchstones were stunning in my opinion. Magnets>all

    I had a wireless charger for my Z30 when I first got he phone. But after feeling the warmth generated while it was charging I stopped using it because IMO the life of the battery would be compromised.

    The phone gets charged once a day so it's no big deal to plug it in, but no denying wireless charging was a nice convenience.
