"The Powermat range of wireless charging products we first spied at CES 2009 are now available for purchase. The system consists of a plug in charging mat and a receiver embedded in a cover for your portable device that allows you to "drop and charge" without having to to fiddle with cords as well as simultaneously charge multiple devices."
This is a rather cool idea, but even though it is wireless, you still have to have the case adapter for it to work correctly. You can buy the adapter for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch for $40.00 USD, and decide if you want the regular mat for home or the folding mat for travel. Either way, the mat will cost you $99.00 USD. Blackberry isn't left out as they have a special battery door adapter available for $30.00 USD which fits the Bold, Pearl, Curve, 8300 and 8900.
