One of the features I have often wished that my iPhone had is the ability to be wirelessly synced to iTunes. I can never seem to find my charge and synchronize cable when I need it. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and wireless sync seems like something Apple could offer.

Until the feature is offered by Apple, Alereon has announced that it will be debuting a new iPhone accessory at Computex that will allow wireless synchronization and more. The accessory features one of Alereon’s wireless USB chips inside allowing for full-speed USB connectivity to a Mac or PC without needing a wire.

The gadget connects to the charge port of the iPhone or an iPod and has an internal battery. The battery inside the accessory gives the iPhone or iPod longer runtime between charges. No drivers are required for the wireless sync to work according to Alereon. Pricing and availability are unknown.
