future tech

With CES happening, it’s going to be a great time to speculate on what’s coming up in 2013. By the time this week is over, we’ll have a great understanding of the direction technology is headed long term, as well as what we can expect to see immediately.

The LG Nexus 4 is going to be unveiled in late October according to recent reports, but we already know pretty much everything there is to know about the device. A leaked prototype has been in the hands of a tech publication for days now, and we have been able to see the device in crystal clear pictures and virtually take it for a 360 degrees spin.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is on its way soon, offering the new Windows Phone 8 operating system and one feature that truly sets it apart from the competition: its built-in inductive charging system. The idea of wireless charging is nothing new to Android devices through the use of special accessories, but we’ve yet to see a built-in system. Android devices often led the pack when it comes to adopting new features and technology, and likely built-in inductive systems like found in the Nokia 920 are already in works. Perhaps even in devices like the rumored Samsung Galaxy S4? Is inductive charging the only possible path for the future of wireless charging, though? Apple doesn’t think so.
