Ya know, this is cool and all but charging your device by laying it on a pad, while convenient, is also less efficient than charging it directly from a cord. Some of the field chargers I've played with actually WASTE as much power as they deliver to the device being charged. Considering these devices are already expensive, doubling your power requirements because of the inherent inefficiencies associated with the charging method just really doesn't seem like a good plan. We've spent a lot of money and time developing more efficient chargers for cords, and now we're taking a step backwords (or so it seems to me).
