If you've already misplaced the charging cable for your MyTouch 4G Slide, then it's time to hustle back to your local T-Mobile retailer, where the new QWERTY handset is joined at its in-store launch by Powercube's inductive charging cover. Sure, your bank account just received $200 worth of hurt, but if you've got a $90 buffer on your credit card, what's an extra $30 for the shell and $60 for the Powermat, especially if it means keeping your phone alive? Sadly, both stores we called didn't have the cover, so you might want to give Magenta a buzz beforehand, although T-Mo's website is ready to take your money. No matter how you get it, you'll still need to keep the base station from getting buried under pizza boxes and laundry, but we know you're up to the task. Follow after the break for a slice of the PR.

Powermat to Release Wireless Charging System for T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide in Time with Phone Launch

New York, NY (July 28, 2011) – Powermat, the leader in wireless charging, announced today the availability of a dedicated wireless charging solution for the T-Mobile® myTouch 4G Slide coinciding with in-store availability of the new Android™-powered smartphone.

The Powermat solution for the myTouch 4G Slide will allow users to wirelessly charge their Smartphones by replacing the battery cover on the device with a Powermat receiver that mimics the look and feel of the smartphone's original battery cover. The one time replacement allows customers to simply 'drop and charge' their myTouch 4G Slide on any Powermat to begin wireless power delivery.

The new T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide features the most advanced camera of any smartphone with zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor and additional premium digital camera features that offer consumers a viable replacement for their digital point & shoot camera.

With a Powermat wireless charging system specifically designed for the myTouch 4G Slide, customers will have less worry about their charging needs, the tangle of spaghetti wires or the daily hassle of plugging / unplugging their device.

"We are delighted to work closely with T-Mobile to support the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide as it becomes available to consumers," said Ran Poliakine, Powermat CEO. "The opportunity to collaborate with T-Mobile and introduce Powermat technology with the launch of the myTouch 4G Slide helps expand the nationwide availability of wireless charging."

The Powermat wireless charging solution for the myTouch 4G Slide will be sold exclusively by T-Mobile. Powermat wireless charging support for additional products from T-Mobile is anticipated in the future.
