    Nothing yet as of right now. Apparently there's an inductive car mount for the GSM GN coming out soon but nothing quite yet for us

    The problem we will face is that it won't be as simple as replacing the battery door, it would take a whole new battery with contacts on it that would be activated by the induction. Phones like the thunderbolt had contacts inside, and just needed a new door. It would be really awesome, but with the new battery, door, and then mat we would probably be out about $100.

    Not to mention that you would also likely lose the NFC ability unless the company who made this product went out of their way to take this into account.

    There is a mod in this forum to use parts from a Palm inductive system. I'll be giving it a try once the parts come in!
