Lately, smartphones are becoming an integral part of our daily lives and it is important that our device’s battery offers us enough juice for longer hours of usage. That’s where a portable charger plays its important role and Nokia has unveiled a wireless car charger for its Lumia 920 smartphones, which should help its consumers enjoy that extra liberty of usage when they are on the go.
Nokia’s wireless car charger comes with NFC built-in and is designed like a Nokia car phone holder. Aside from the obvious benefit of the wireless charging, the NFC functionality will allow you to start a specific app or turn on specific car mode setting on your smartphone just by placing it on the stand.
Looks like webOS has a new owner now. After being acquired by HP back in 2010 and then being made open source a year later, the mobile operating system has now been acquired by LG.
If you’re hoping to see some new smartphones and tablets from LG running webOS, however, you are in for a disappointment. LG has no such plans for webOS as of now and will only be using the OS to power its range of smart TVs.

The tablet was rumored to be unveiled officially at the Mobile World Congress this year. The rumors, it seems, were true, as was noticed by one of the show goers, who managed to snag a picture of the tablet at Samsung’s booth prior to official announcement.
