LG's WCD-800 goes wireless to power your phone

In addition to the shiny new smartphones that it introduced last week at Mobile World Congress, LG also showed off a wireless charger that encourages you to use your device while it's receiving juice. 

The WCD-800 is shaped like a cradle and can accommodate your phone in either a portrait or landscape position. So while you make calls, send texts, and watch a video, the charger uses electric coils located inside to power your device via magnetic fields.

It's an interesting idea, no doubt, though it's not as if a standard wired charger prohibits you from using your phone while it's being zapped. Sure, the wired part means that you have to stay in one place for a short period, but there are more inconvenient things.
