Just because a patent's filed, doesn't mean the company in question has any ambition to actually make the damn thing. Take Apple's inductive charger, which proposes wrapping headphones around a charging tower with the earbuds conducting electricity to the iPhone.
I shouldn't have to spell out how ridiculous this idea is. The point to inductive charging is that it simplifies the process (though you inevitably wind up having the wireless charger plugged into a wall socket like you would the normal charger). The Palm Pre Touchstone was an exercise in how to do wireless charging right. Even Powermat got it right eventually, ditching the clumsy phone cases for swappable batteries that conduct power when nestled on the charger.
