As we heard from Intel at its Computex keynote, the merger between A4WP (Alliance for Wireless Power) and PMA (Power Matters Alliance) is finally a signed deal as of today, which is a big step towards delivering the next-generation wireless power — one that can transmit further while also covering a wider range of wattage — to consumers. Intel’s SVP Kirk Skaugen, the very same man who’s been pushing for the totally wireless PC since last year’s Computex (the photo sort of explains why), added that we’ll be seeing this magnetic resonance technology aka Rezence being integrated into next year’s laptops, keyboard, mice and other devices. For those who can’t wait, the exec also expects to see Rezence-enabled add-ons for mobile devices during the transitional period. “This will be a journey just like Centrino: we didn’t invent wireless notebooks; we just made wireless ubiquitous.”
