    Yes. Somewhere here in this subforum you'll see a thread I started about just that. Also, Apple has a patent for a mobile LCD display that doubles as a solar panel.

    Apple patent suggests wireless device charging | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog

    According to a recent Apple patent, users may one day be able to charge their iPhones and iPads wirelessly. The patent, titled "Wireless power utilization in a local computing environment," describes a way that computers, such as an iMac or MacBook, could charge a device like the iPhone when it is put within three feet of the computer. The technology works using near field magnetic resonance (NFMR) power transmission.
