Starbucks pilots wireless charging in Boston

Starbucks rolled out free WiFi in all its stores two years ago. Now Starbucks has identified 17 locations around Boston for a “limited time in-store trial for wireless charging.”

According to Starbucks chief digital officer Adam Brotman, “We’re building the Powermat technology into some of the tabletops, just to get a sense for how our customers will react, compared to having to plug their mobile devices into the wall.

The first three stores where this technology is being installed are all in the Financial District: One Financial Center, 125 Summer Street, and 101 Federal Street.  Want to find out what other Starbucks  will have this technology installed?  Read the story in today’s Boston Globe here.
