Nokia joins Wireless Power Consortium

updated 04:50 pm EDT, Thu October 1, 2009

Nokia now a member of Wireless Power Consortium

The Wireless Power Consortium on Thursday announced that cellphone maker Nokia has become one of its members. This is expected to result in quicker development and the more widespread use of the Qi wireless charging standard the Consortium is working on. With the addition of Nokia, the company has backed the open standards that would be shared among many makers of cell phones and other portable electronics devices.

The Wireless Power Consortium was established in December of last year, and its members include Olympus, Philips and Samsung, among others. The Consortium initially hopes to develop a system that would charge low power devices that use 5W of power or less, including cellphones and portable media players. Eventually, the Consortium hopes to develop technology that would allow larger devices, such as notebooks and small appliances, to be charged wirelessly.
