Intel snubs Qi, goes with Alliance for Wireless Power
posted by Alan F. / Jun 23, 2013, 12:10 AM
Intel likes the direction that the A4WP is taking toward near-field magnetic resonance technology which allows devices to be charged without touching a pad. Intel wants to further develop Wireless Charging Technology to allow a smartphone or tablet to automatically recharge when placed close to a laptop.

From what I'm seeing this type of Wireless charging is more flexible and easier, but, it looks like it will give you cancer with the whole "near field" charging. We'll see where QI Wireless Charging goes because Nokia have done a lot for it, can't quit now.
