NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Wireless provider AT&T has launched wireless device charging stations at more than two dozen parks, beaches and other outdoor spaces across the five boroughs.
The 25 solar-powered street charging stations are part of a pilot program between the wireless company and the city. The city will not bear any cost for the project.
Each station can accommodate up to six mobile devices or tablets at a time and work regardless of wireless carrier. The 12-foot-tall charging stations feature three petal-shaped solar panels at the top and each have dedicated ports for Androids, BlackBerrys, iPhones and standard USB cables.
