Dell claims to offer the "world's first wireless charging 2-in-1" mobile device-- the Latitude 7285, a 12-inch portable PC promising to be thin and light while meeting the needs of commercial clients.

First seen back at CES 2017, the Latitude 7285 is also described as the "world's thinnest Windows-based commercial 2-in-1." For the record, it is 7.25mm thick, 274.8mm wide and 209.2mm, while weight totals 0.68kg. It carries a 12.3-inch 2880 x 1920 resolution display with an anti-glare panel, and can be configured with a variety of processors, from Intel Core i5-7Y54 to Core i7-7Y75 (all 4.5W solutions), and M.2 PCIe NVMe storage from 128GB to 256GB.

The aforementioned wireless charging uses the WiTricity standard and requires extra hardware-- specifically either an included USB-C 45W adapter or an optional wireless charging mat (PM30W171). Use of the charging mat requires an optional Dell Latitude wireless charging keyboard.

Apple Files $1bn Suit Against Qualcomm

Apple accuses Qualcomm of employing extortion, price-gouging and other monopolistic practices-- and as a result the iPhone maker is filing a $1 billion lawsuit against the semiconductor giant.
