Dell Latitude Z For Rich Execs Could Be First Laptop With Wireless Charging

I'm really praying this isn't another Adamo. The soon-to-be-introduced Dell Latitude Z will have a premium design, super high end specs and a lofty price tag. I've heard that all before, but wireless charging in a notebook? That's new.

The laptop is said to have a 16-inch display, which is a larger screen than your average business notebook. Other than that, the details are few and far between. Apparently it will pack an Intel processor and, you know, RAM and a hard drive.

But back to the wireless charging that's being reported by Forbes, the details of which aren't entirely clear. My guess is the laptop would need to be put on an inductive pad of sorts to charge without wires. Sort of like the Palm touchstone or those WildCharge mats, but this would be pretty new for laptops.

The whole package is said to be more than the "typical $1,100 business laptop," in both design and price, which means it's going to be costly. According to Forbes, Dell thinks the world is ready for another expensive laptop (or maybe optimistically thinks companies have the budget for that kind of thing these days). Sounds like it will be announced in the next couple of weeks. [Forbes]
