  • Gidophone kiosk hopes to crack US market after CES debut

The Gidophone charging station made its U.S. debut at last week's Consumer Electronics Show, giving the French company a much desired boost into the American market.

The 6-foot-tall inductive charging tower kiosk charges cellphones, tablets, laptop computers, MP3 players, game consoles, PDAs and cameras, an announcement from the company said. The Gidophone seeks to satisfy security conscious users by offering private, locked compartments where the devices remain while charging.

The company said its product is ideal for use in airports, train stations, shopping centers, hotels and other public spaces. The unit accepts customer payments through cash, credit cards or debit cards, and can be retrofitted to include display shelving, multimedia, corporate or sponsor branding.

"The reaction to our kiosk thus far has been phenomenal," said Christian Pineau, Gidophone's VP of sales. "From the conversations that I've had with CES attendees thus far, I think that the U.S. market has just been waiting for a product like Gidophone."
