Qualcomm joins Wireless Power Consortium board

Today's news brought to us by the folks over at the Wireless Power Consortium is leaving us feeling ambivalent. Qualcomm has just been voted by the WPC board to join in.

This is huge, considering that Qualcomm is one of the frontrunners of the rival Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), another group that promotes a different wireless charging standard.

Assuming that Qualcomm's intentions are pure, then having the company on the WPC board could spell hope for a unified standard. Among the members of the board includes Verizon, HTC, LG, Nokia, Toshiba, Panasonic, and Sony.

Explaining its stand, the WPC exhorts that it encourages competitors to join in order to create a "level playing field that makes it easier for members to invest in R&D and the result is more choice for consumers.
