At the recently concluded Nokia event in New York last week, we saw the introduction of the new Lumia 920 that came with wireless charging capability. Well, it makes perfect sense then, for Nokia as well as Virgin Atlantic to work together to install wireless charging facilities at Virgin Atlantic’s Heathrow Clubhouse so that passengers are able to juice up their dead batteries before taking off for their destination. Of course, it does help if the plane itself comes with power outlets (some airlines do offer that), but then again having wireless charging capability is always a plus point since there are no cables to worry about.
Nokia’s executive vice president of smart devices, Jo Harlow, mentioned, “Virgin Atlantic is putting passengers first by removing a major anxiety, particularly for business travellers – how to keep their phone charged throughout a long day.” Will Nokia be able to introduce wireless charging capability as a standard for the industry in the near future?
