Intel is Working on Ultrabooks That Could Wirelessly Charge Your Smartphone

Intel is Working on Ultrabooks That Could Wirelessly Charge Your SmartphoneUltrabook News

If Intel's plans for future Ultrabooks come to fruition, Duracell may have a problem on its hands. DigiTimes is reporting that the processor giant is looking to infuse its Ultrabooks and smartphones with its in-house wireless charging technology beginning in 2013: 

Intel's wireless charging solution uses an ultrabook as the power source paired with related software and a transmitter to wirelessly charge a smartphone. According to Intel's data, the solution will feature lower power consumption and does not require the phone to be put in a very specific position.

If the technology allows Intel-powered Ultrabooks to wirelessly charge any smartphone, or any smartphone that rocks some sort of special case, then great. If not, we recommend everyone pick up a Mophie Juice Pack.
