As consumers use their MIDs, they tend to fall in love with the rich, interactive, PC-like internet experience. Intel's next generation MID platform, codenamed Moorestown, dramatically reduces power while maintaining high performance and software compatibility - making it possible for consumers to enjoy this experience for extended periods of time
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2009
Mojo Mobility, the leader in wireless power, today announced support for Intel-based Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs). At the Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan, Mojo Mobility also demonstrated its low cost, high efficiency wireless charging system working in conjunction with Intel's next generation MID platform, codenamed "Moorestown" at the post Intel key-note showcase.
The integration of Mojo Mobility's Near Field Power® (NFP™) system into mobile devices enables a seamless wireless experience for the users by allowing them to power or charge their devices wirelessly while using their wireless communication capabilities. Available later this year, Mojo Mobility's patent pending inductive wireless charging NFP™ system allows intelligent wireless charging and powering of devices at the same charging rate as conventional wired charging. The NFP™ receiver can be integrated into mobile devices without changing the form factor or size of the device, enabling easy low cost integration by device manufacturers. The system's Mojo pad™, or base, intelligently adjusts voltage and current to match the specific device's requirements. Once the device is fully charged, the Mojo™ pad shuts down to eliminate standby power usage common in wired chargers.
"We see a tremendous opportunity in the area of wireless power and are pleased to be working with Intel to bring this solution to MIDs," noted Afshin Partovi, CEO of Mojo Mobility. "Our NFP™ system is currently being evaluated by multiple top-tier OEMs, mobile carriers, and others for use in a variety of applications. We anticipate OEM products incorporating Mojo™ wireless charging to be shipping in the near future."
"As consumers use their MIDs, they tend to fall in love with the rich, interactive, PC-like internet experience. Intel's next generation MID platform, codenamed Moorestown, dramatically reduces power while maintaining high performance and software compatibility - making it possible for consumers to enjoy this experience for extended periods of time," said Pankaj Kedia, director of global ecosystem programs in Intel's ultra mobility group. "Mojo Mobility's wireless charging solution will now make it easier for consumers to stay connected and entertained while on-the-go."
In addition to integrated wireless charging solutions, Mojo Mobility plans to introduce charging pads and an after-market series of device batteries with the same size and shape as original batteries which incorporate the Mojo™ NFP™ technology and address the installed based of existing devices.
Pricing for the Mojo™ charging pads and batteries was not disclosed, but "will be competitive with existing chargers and batteries," according to Partovi.
