Research firm Strategy Analytics has issued a report that says wireless charging like the Pre uses with its Touchstone accessory is pointless in isolation. According to the company, wireless charging needs to be used in conjunction with other technology like super capacitors for wireless high-speed charging.

The research firm predicts that the price of wireless charging accessories will fall to around $15 by 2014. When combined with super capacitors for fast charging it will offer a significantly increased value proposition of wireless charging.

Even without a super capacitor, I think the Touchstone accessory for the Pre is really cool and I have a serious hankering for that WildCharge system for my iPhone. To me it would be worth the $70 to not have to fuss with the iPhone charge cable anymore.
