If this rumor is true, then this is going to be the ultimate portable notebook.
From Tech Ticker:
Dell Latitude Z was leaked in June and till date we maintain that it looks hot. Now the word comes from Forbes is that Latitude Z will get its official unveiling in the coming weeks along with an interesting feature.
The Latitude Z will support wireless charging. How it works is still a mystery but we can expect something on the lines of previous concepts like Wildcharge or Palm’s Touchstone.
I’m pretty sure that the charging will be kind of a hassle more than an advantage, but whatever will push us more towards full wireless charging for ultimate portability, I’m for it.

We all know that Windows 7 would be (finally) spell the death of the venerable Windows XP. You see, XP had a pretty good run, but I think it’s time to finally let it rest. Windows 7 is the future, baby!
But this is weird: if they want to phase out Windows XP so badly, why are we seeing Windows 7 Starter Edition prices go higher than XP? It doesn’t make sense at all.
Microsoft still hasn’t officially announced exactly how much it will charge for Windows 7 Starter Edition, and the price could be variable since it will be sold in large volumes to PC makers. Consumers won’t be able to walk into a store and pick up a copy. But Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer did suggest recently that the pricing scheme will go something like this: Windows XP, Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home, and then Windows 7 Professional.

It looks like Nvidia is continuing to burn bridges with possible clients in its bid to continue its stiff competition with ATI.
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has accused Intel of unfair chip pricing even though he also daid that his company will not be filing any antitrust lawsuits against the top chip maker.
Huangs pronouncements may be considered strange considering that the company is in a partnership with Intel in making graphics chips that are paired with the Atom. Huang said that Intel sells the Atom for $45 but a three-chip set is sold at $25 as a way of “luring business away.” Huang said that this practice is unfair and that companies like Nvidia should be able to compete and serve the market.
Although Huang has a point — Intel was recently ordered by the European Commission to pay a fine of 1.6 billion euros for its illegal competition practices against rival Advanced Micro Devices — saying something negative against a company you’re currently in business with would still raise eyebrows.
