While I haven't seen the full report (Cut the Cord: Wireless Charging Systems Analysis and Forecast), on the surface, the In-stat news release stats are in line with what we have viewed in the market place. Wireless charging technology carries a great potential to free consumers from the inconvenience of charging cables and adapters. The technology will come to full fruition once the base infrastructure is in place. This includes accessible wireless charging "hotspots" at hotels, airports, restaurants and other public places.
TI is a founding member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) and has been actively working with other WPC members towards a common standard. The standard will enable a true universal wireless charging solution by bringing interoperability across all devices used by consumers and businesses.
Now you know In-Stat's stats and TI's point of view. So, what's your take on the technology?
