During the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, California, Chipzilla disclosed a few things that would lead to its vision of the future, where all computing devices, no matter how small, could communicate wirelessly.
Atom system-on-chip (SoC) platform will do most of the work on that front, when it gets released two years from now.
It is only half of the equation though. The other half is wireless battery charging technology.
We already know that ultrabooks are bound to integrated wireless charging
eventually. That doesn't clarify much about smartphones and tablets though.
Fortunately, we’ve found a report
that provided the names of the companies that would assist Intel in this matter: Integrated Device Technology (USA), BYD (from China) and Compal (Taiwanese notebook ODM).
The report also says when the first phones, ultrabooks and slates equipped with Intel-developed wireless charging will appear: early 2013, possibly during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) or Mobile World Congress (MWC).
