samsung-tomnia-bmw-wireless-charging

Samsung and BMW broke new ground this week by integrating a wireless cell phone charger into a 7-series BMW.  Unfortunately, and yes don’t get too excited, it’s currently only compatible with the Samsung T*Omnia.  Is it me, or does this setup look as good as a ‘dock’, which leads me to question where the wireless part is.  It isn’t clear if Samsung has licensed the tech from Powermat or some other company, but if Apple ever comes out with a similar solution (hint) we know it will show up in BMW vehicles given their past history, right?
