Already at an early stage – long before the unveiling of the device – the rumor surfaced that the Samsung Galaxy S3 wireless rechargeable would be. And although this is not a standard feature of the Galaxy S3 turns out to be, there will soon be indeed a charger that lets you buy the phone without using cables to load. How does this work? How practical is it?
