We haven’t really been sure how Motorola planned on charging up the Moto 360, but now it’s pretty obvious.
As seen in the photo above, the next big smartwatch to come to market will have a wireless charging dock, which displays the watch face while charging. This makes it a serviceable bedside clock.
According to a recent FCC filing for the device, the Moto 360 takes advantage of Qi wireless charging capabilities, which means there are no connectors on the back, as found in LG’s G Watch. (That means no corroding pins!)
This is all good news leading up to the launch of Motorola’s new watch, which should come relatively soon.

If you’ve been trying to find a great dock for your Nexus 4, the search may be over. German industrial engineer David Hawig has introduced his Andock, which is more of an entertainment hub than a dock on Startnext. The dock cradles the Nexus 4 horizontally and provides an HDMI out, NFC, and a fan for CPU cooling. I think it’s safe to say we’ve never seen a dock for mobile phones that comes with external CPU cooling. Read more

When we heard Fulton Innovations was demoing a tablet that could actually charge your smartphone, we had to take a look. Come to find out, that’s not the only thing the company is showing off at CES 2013. Rather, Fulton Innovations has big plans in store for wireless charging, and especially the Qi standard found on devices like the Droid DNA and LG Nexus 4.
The company envisions a future where manufacturers can release cheap, electron-infused sheets of paper with things like speakers or buttons that can be powered by your smartphone or tablet. Who would have thought we could utilize the same standard we use to charge our device to actually power other objects. Pretty darn cool.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for those of you Nexus 7 owners looking forward to that elusive docking station, but it appears the shipping date has been pushed back just oh-so slightly. According to the listing found at online retailer B&H, the Nexus 7 dock has been revised to show a January 16th shipping date— which still technically falls in line with the originally expected mid-January ship date, but still gives a minor reason for concern considering there are many of you out there who were hoping for the dock arriving as early as on the 15th (or even possibly before that).
The good thing is that at least the 16th is only a few weeks away… let’s just hope owners of the tablet won’t need to wait beyond that.

Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait for Nexus 7 owners elsewhere in the world.

The elusive Nexus 7 dock just won’t stop teasing us. First it popped up on Asus Japan’s website with a mid-December release date, then we saw some hands-on time in a short unboxing video, then the dock surfaced on B&H Photography’s website with a December 30th release, and today the dock showed up on EXcaliber PC’s website where the little guy is listed as arriving on January 6th, 2013. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the release of this dock, and we still have no clue whether it will show up on the Google Play store. Anyone willing to place some bets on which date they think they Nexus 7 dock will be available? I’m going with December 30th (just because I don’t like waiting).
