Several other interesting technologies are promised for Ceatec.
Seiko Epson and Murata will show a prototype wireless recharging system for portable devices. It promises not only faster recharging - a mobile phone can be recharged in about 20 minutes instead of 2 hours - but it also doesn't require wires. The device just needs to be placed on the charger for charging to begin.
Toshiba will also be showing a laptop PC based on a new processor derived from the Cell chip that powers the PlayStation 3. The high-performance chip is aimed at multimedia applications such as video processing and is expected to find a home in future consumer electronics products.
Ceatec runs from October 2 to 6 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
