Nexus 10 Pogo Charger Might Have Maybe Been Spotted In The Wild

 

A user over at Android Central posted a picture he is alleging is the magnetic pogo charger for the Nexus 10. The user, known as jstevenkim, went on to say the charger will be available on Amazon and eBay within the next 10 days for around $19.95 to $24.99 USD. There’s no way of telling if this is legit (other than waiting 10 days to see what happens) but, like Mulder, I want to believe. I want to believe the Nexus 10 pogo-pin connector will get more use than the similar port on the Galaxy Nexus.

Sadly, this is closer than the Nexus 7 has come to getting a pogo charger. Although, we did see a dock which uses the pogo pins for charging, and possibly audio output, pop up on ASUS Japan but it’s yet to be made available for sale. I’m not sure if the pogo charger will really charge a device that much faster than micro USB, but it seems cool. Why should Apple be the only one with a magnetic attachment for their (Mac) chargers anyway?

    Wikipedia search magsafe and read paragraph 3. Shouldnt that be the answer to the question about why Apple is the only one using a magnetic power chord? They hold a patent which they do not license out to anyone.
