Wireless charging means you don’t need to plug in a power cable (although you’ll still need one for the charging pad). WiGig technology lets you connect to a docking station if you want to use a keyboard, mouse, storage devices, or other peripherals. And Intel WiDi technology supports wireless displays.

Intel also notes that advertisements could be shown on that screen.

Another batch of revelations from Intel include active stylus support, 13MP, 4K cameras, multiple microphones for noise cancellation, a keyboard base station with a ForcePad touchpad, full-sized keyboard, and an extra battery.
