Ossia aims to bring TRUE wireless charging to your home with the Cota wireless charger

without comments

Current wireless charging apparatus isn’t really all that the name describes; it needs to be against a supported device to work, basically defeating the whole purpose of WIRELESS charging. Ossia, a fairly mysterious start up aims to change that with their new Cota device.

The Cota by Ossia aims at bringing TRUE wireless charging to a supported device near you. Harem Zeine demoed the Cota prototype at TechCrunch’s Disrupt, and boy does it look good. The Cota makes use of current 2,400MHz wireless frequencies, currently being made use of by both Bluetooth and WiFi, in order to send a small one watt magnetic charge to a supported device up to 30 feet away. It’s harmless and can go through walls and other materials with relative ease. What’s better? You can specify which devices you want to give access to and which you don’t. Basically, it’s WiFi Charging, and it’s pretty cool.

No word on when we will see the tech on the market, but it is more than likely going to be a while as Ossia plans to license the technology to OEMs first, and the fact that one device is about the size of your average PC tower…

Official HTC One Max renders leaked, looks like… a bigger One

What a way to start the week off? EVLeaks earlier this morning leaked out some official looking press renders of the upcoming HTC One Max ‘phablet’ which is slated for launch later this year and set to compete directly with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III.

The HTC One Max render leaked by EVLeaks is apparently of a non-final version of the device, but there are some slightly noticeable changes to the device’s design. The HTC One Max seems to have a more conspicuous plastic rim around the edges, similar to the one found on the HTC One Mini, there’s also the obvious addition of a larger display. On the rear of the One Max you’ll see the camera’s flash has had a change of position, but other than that, it appears to follow HTC’s new design language. The HTC One Max has been rumoured to pack a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and a larger battery alongside HTC’s new UltraPixel cameras and their Sense 5 UI.

An exact date on which the HTC One Max will launch is yet to be revealed, but rumours suggest that HTC will launch the HTC One Max on September 5 at IFA 2013 in Berlin, Germany, just a day after the Samsung Galaxy Note III is set to be unveiled.

The HTC One Max has been lingering in rumourland for quite some time now, but the latest leak seems to confirm the existence of the device, if its real that is. The HTC One Max will apparently be a larger version of the HTC One just like the HTC One Mini was a smaller version. The device was initially leaked by O2, a UK carrier, in a inventory log.

The HTC One Max was allegedly caught on camera by an insider who promptly provided it to ePrice, a Taiwanese site. The HTC One Max will allegedly launch early next month at IFA 2013 which is set to be held in Berlin Germany. The One Max has been rumoured to feature a full metal body just like its smaller siblings, and will feature a large 5.9-inch 1080p touch display as well as a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a hefty 3,200mAh battery. The HTC One Max is set to take on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III and may just give HTC a foot to stand on in its constant war for a larger share of the Android market, currently dominated by larger players such as Samsung and LG.

The HTC One Max could possibly be HTC’s knight in shining armour, quite literally, but it remains to be seen whether or not HTC will be able to make the device competitive enough in terms of features compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note III which is rumoured to pack quite the punch. Who will you be rooting for, HTC or Samsung?
