The new business product from the American manufacturer includes a unique addition that we have been waiting for a long time - but it will cost you a lot of money
Smartphones with capabilities wireless charging They are nothing new, and although technology can still be defined as a niche, it is difficult to rule out the assertion that it has a lot of potential to become something consumers love and expect to get in any new product they purchase - if and when prices are low enough to allow mass adoption and performance close enough. Of standard wired charging.
After all, just put your smartphone (or any other device with battery Rechargeable) on a small dedicated and designed surface and getting them back when they are loaded and ready for another day of use sounds like an absolutely likable concept. Because of this, we were surprised to find that support for additional wireless charging products would arrive with such a significant delay - only now for example, for the first time, also for מחשב נייד.
So now Dell's Latitude 7825 model has won the first title of its kind ever with cable-free charging capability - but the problem is that it does so with a particularly expensive plugin, which probably makes it clear that we are still quite far from the moment when Technology This can be considered ripe to become a common and basic product suitable for everyone.
The American manufacturer has chosen to upgrade their hybrid business windows tablet, which has a starting price of $ 1,200 for which you will receive an IGZO screen with a resolution of 2,880 × 1,920 pixels, an ultra-economical Core i5 processor from the Y family of Intel, Dynamic memory of 8 gigabytes, volume storage 128 GB and a dedicated touch pen, with the new technology - via a docking station-keyboard that connects to it and includes the hardware required for charging performance without cables in front of a suitable charging surface, based on the technology of WiTricity.
The keyboard will charge the main battery of the computer while the user is working normally - but the problem is that the same dedicated keyboard will cost those who buy it no less than $ 380 (!), While the charging surface will cost an additional $ 200 (the pair can be purchased Together for $ 550 ("only"). These are definitely high prices, especially for a computer that alone carries a price tag that is not so easy to swallow, even in terms of the corporate and business market.
We still hope that Dell will find the right niche for it, and that with this development will come the appetite to create more and more products with wireless charging support - but we will keep our recommendation for purchase for a later time, when this capability will be a little more mainstream.
