BARCELONA, Spain, March 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global home furnishings retailer IKEA today announced a product launch of Qi-powered bedside tables, lamps and desks that eliminates cable mess and makes it easier to stay connected with always-charged mobile devices. IKEA said the wireless charging home furnishings will be available in Europe and North America this April, followed by a global rollout.

That's the final push Qi needs. This will work with Microsoft Lumias as well as several Android handsets.

Any chance Apple deems this to be a nice feature in the near future? In particular for this watch?

The iPhone is out of the question, without an external jacket. Inductive charging does not work through a aluminium back. And for the watch Apple has already specified inductive charging. Expect lots of options, not necessarily from IKEA though.

Endlich... :-)
