Plug [Q] QI Wireless charging

Would it be possible to add QI charging to Xperia m and have the phone detect that it's charging wirelessly? I was thinking of using these two products.

Hard case: (Don't want to open phone or interfere with NFC or it's contacts)

Qi Receiver:

How could we have the phone detect it's using the wireless charger? How does NFC react to using QI? Would I need to position the QI Coil above the NFC coil as much as possible?

Well it will detect normal charging and not wireless charging as such. I think u will find some difficulty in taking the wire to the left side unlike the one shown in the image has the charging slot below. And it won't interfere with the NFc in any way.

Some Nexus devices have both Qi and NFC, so what would you think? Huh?

I had assumed that the NFC and QI coils are in different locations on the nexus devices. Since the NFC coil is centered in Xperia M, there would be some overlapping.

Other pictures of similar receiving coils show the ribbon cable being folded, so I was thinking of diagonally bending the ribbon cable.

If this receiving coil doesn't short the data lines on the USB connector, it will be detecting as device trying to connect to usb, but there is nothing connected to the data lines, so is it possible to use this to detect that it's wireless charging as opposed to regular AC charger or connection to computer?
