Things are different now.
BlackBerry is part of the Qi consortium, and they have one specific type of Z30 that supports Qi charging: this model is currently sold exclusively by Verizon Wireless.
All other types of Z30 don't support Qi charging.
All other models (Z10, Q5, Q10) don't support Qi charging.
Great share Xandrex!

If you search around for "webOS touchstone hacks" you'll find lots of folks (e.g. webosinternals) who have hacked the (proprietary, non-Qi) old webOS inductive charging system into other phones. It's not trivial and you need to be good with tools and a soldering iron but you can probably still find all the parts (charging puck, phone back covers) online cheap these days. I haven't looked in a while. webOS wireless charging was brilliant in its time, and was about to get even better right before HP killed it.
