WiTricity has announced that Dell’s Latitude 7285, the industry’s first 2-in-1 to enable a workspace free of all wires to the device, incorporates its magnetic resonance-based wireless charging for PCs. The Latitude 7285 is AirFuel-certified and will be interoperable with the emerging magnetic resonance-based wireless charging ecosystem, in which WiTricity technology is foundational.
With growing teams, office space at a premium, and workers increasingly mobile, workplaces today seek aesthetically pleasing solutions that drive efficiency and mobility throughout the day. In parallel, employees depend on an increasing number of personal devices that frequently need to be charged. Wireless data connectivity has been widespread in notebooks for years, but there is one wire that has always remained in the equation – the power cord.
The new Latitude 7285 enables a streamlined user experience by allowing people to ditch all cords to the device and have laptops charge seamlessly when placed on an AirFuel compatible charging surface. When combined with a WiGig wireless dock, you have a simple and convenient workspace with no wires to the device.
"Given that Dell tools help the world’s brightest minds do their absolute best work, we are committed to driving innovation that brings revolutionary gains in productivity to the enterprise. Innovative IT teams see a future with no wires, including wireless power, as a key step toward improvements in mobility and convenience," said Neil Hand, VP Product Strategy and Innovation, Dell.
Alex Gruzen, CEO, WiTricity said:"The Dell Latitude 7285 not only enables a more productive working environment, but accelerates establishment of a broader magnetic resonance-powered wireless charging ecosystem for a wide range of devices.”
The Latitude 7285 will be demonstrated at the 2017 CES Show at Dell’s suite in the Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, located in the Venetian Hotel. The suite is open to public/experiential activations: Jan. 5th, 12:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Jan. 6th, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
CES 2017 runs through Sunday, January 8.
