Pré-style wireless charging comes to the iPhone

WildSkin takes on Touchstone

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The iPhone has finally caught up with Palm’s Pré thanks to accessory firm WildCharge and its wire-free charging system for Apple devices.

First, slip a WildSkin onto your Apple device...

WildCharge skins for the iPhone and iPod Touch are, according to the manufacturer, the first wire-free charging add-ons available for both Apple products.

The charging process is very similar to the one employed by Palm: you to place your WildSkin-clad iPhone or iPod Touch onto a special power pad - sold separately, natch - so that power can be wirelessly transferred through to your Apple device.

...and then place it onto the WildCharge charging pad

While all the technology required to do this on the Pré is integrated into the device, WildCharge requires you to fit a special “durable, protective and form-fitting case” onto your Apple gadget first.

The iPod Touch-compatible WildCharge skin is available to order online now for $35 (£21/€25), though kit isn't yet shipping. A skin and power pad bundle costs $80 (£48/€57).

The iPhone skin and power pad, which is compatible with the iPhone 3G and 3G S, won’t be available to order for another two weeks. ®
