    But the Latitude 7285 needs an extra $550 worth of accessories to enable this functionality.

    "Wireless charging tech doesn't seem to be ubiquitous for mobile devices, where it is most useful"
    "starting price for 12 inch tablet convertible is $1,199 and to wirelessly charge you need another $550"

    Now run the prices through the how-much-ripoff-does-UK-deserve-today-izer and the result will be almost directly reverse proportional to collective interest in devices like this one.

    While I like the convenience of not having to plug stuff in this kind of seems a little pointless.

    You need a 'huge' wireless mat for it to sit on while it's charging... which means you're still tied to the same spot and require a power cable so other than one extra free port it's really no different to just plugging straight into the device.

    If this was using 'radio waves' to charge/power the device then I can see the benefits but using a mat kind of seems pointless to me.

    The device itself looks quite nice but I'll wait to see what sort of uk prices we get before passing full judgement.
