Intel have just become the latest member to join the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP). A4WP has more than 40 other companies in its embrace, including Samsung, Qualcomm and Broadcom - just to name a few.

Intel's Navin Shenoy has faith in the future of A4WP's standard, where he says: "Intel believes the A4WP specification, particularly the use of near-field magnetic resonance technology, can provide a compelling consumer experience and enable new usage models that make device charging almost automatic. In joining A4WP, we look forward to working alongside other member companies and contributing to standards that help fuel an ecosystem of innovative solutions capable of simultaneously charging a range of devices, from low-power accessories to smartphones, tablets and Ultrabooks."

 

Intel is looking into the future with this partnership, hoping that Ultrabook owners will use the batteries in their Ultrabook to power other devices like smartphones, tablets and more. Wireless charging could be the future of technology, but right now we require the entire industry to settle on a standard, and Intel stepping into the ranks of the A4WP is one of those big steps.
