This is because there is an unhealthy tie between the infrastructure provider and the service provider. Monopoly on infrastructure is a natural monopoly, and to be expected: it is wasteful to have multiple power lines just because there are multiple power companies. But just because there is one motorway between two cities there does not need to be just one company driving on them...

Your "essentially" is a willful mis-reading and intentional misunderstanding. What was the purpose of that? They are not patenting radio. However, they are paying Nokia millions a year for "patents on radio".

Yes, the patent is vastly different from the Qi proprietary standard that Nokia uses. So it is new. Thinking that "adding a meter" makes little differende is just being ignorant. Do you think inductive pans will heat a meter away from an induction stove, too?

And it's not "Nokia's standard" just because Nokia is one of over 100 companies in the consortium behind it.
