Hiroyuki Yoshida, NTT Docomo’s Vice President of Product Planning made the announcement at a key note speech for the conference "FPD International 2012 / Mobile Technology 2012" in Yokohama on October 31, 2012.

The Qi chargers are located in public areas such as Tully's Coffee shops and airport lounges.
