Intel snubs Qi, goes with Alliance for Wireless Power
The Alliance for Wireless Power has won over a big name as chip maker Intel has decided to join the Alliance over Qi. In siding with the A4WP, Intel receives a seat on the board of the organization. The Alliance for Wireless Power has several big chip manufacturers on its side now, including Samsung, Qualcomm and Broadcom.

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.
