LG Electronics has announced the world’s smallest wireless charger with electromagnetic induction technology at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. The new WCP-300 Wireless Charger is Qi certified and measures only 6.9cm in the diameter. This wireless charger will be compatible with all the smartphones that support the Qi Standard for wireless charging.
Palm has been offering TouchStone charger for its Pre smartphone two years ago and no one bothered doing anything similar. But now LG has finally announced a similar charger.

We home that almost all mobile phone makers offer wireless charger and covers for the new devices to support the wireless charging.
