New Gadget Will Synchronize Your iPhone or iPod Wirelessly

Soon you will be able to synchronize your iPhone or iPod touch to your PC or Mac, using a low power chip from Alereon. The new device—a reference design to be used by third-party manufacturers—is small and have a built-in battery that will supply electricity to the iPhone while it's synchronizing with iTunes without any cable. Then again, you will need a cable to recharge the battery, which begs the question: Is there any real advantage of synchronizing wirelessly when you will need a cable anyway at one point or another?

I can't wait for a new Nicola Tesla to come and bring to use actual wireless power. [i4u News]
