LG has announced its latest wireless charging cradle, the LG WCD-800 at this years MWC, the device is designed to let your wirelessly charge your smartphone and also use your device vertically to make video calls horizontally to view movies and TV programs whilst your smartphone is charging.
“As smartphones become the defacto medium for consuming multimedia content and communicating, it is not unusual to find oneself having to recharge a phone a couple times a day,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “It only made sense to turn that charging time into a positive user experience by making the smartphone useful while sitting in the cradle.”
The device is capable of charging your smartphone without any wires, all you need to do is place your device on the dock and it will automatically start charging.
The LG WCD-800 will go on sale in Korea in the first half of 2012 and it will then be available in the US as well, there are no details on whether LG plans to launch the device in Europe.
