I suppose the best posted results are when the charging is done in "wireless contact" - actual touching but not plugged in. The efficiency is certainly much higher here, but may not give the expected proximity advantage of wireless. The advantages may be other things, like no contact or wear issues.

In the current scenario where everybody is talking "GREEN" to design products which can consume less energy or do energy harvesting, this new concept seems to be going in the opposite direction

beware how efficiency is defined.

Efficiency is not a big problem; using resonant inductive coupling, efficiency rates of 90% have been claimed.

Yea True. Do you have any numbers? For eg, How long would it take to charge an iPhone(1400mAH battery) to 100%.

It looks interesting concept. However, we need more analytical analysis to support this concept. Should IEEE also start working developing standard for it?

Wireless charging is sigificantly inefficient compared to wired, so the picture of instantaneous power up is quite misleading.

Interesting. Now we'll have a new way to charge our phones. Wires are getting to become a thing of the past. This will also add to the testing and development cycles as new coexistence tests will have to be done involving Bluetooth, Wifi against wireless charging radiation. But isn't wireless charging inefficient? I suppose a lot of power would be lost through air and the equipment enclosures in the form of heat. wouldn't it?

Intel-phones are Android phones, and Macs use Intel chips. I don't doubt Apple would be very interested in having this functionality in the iPhone. Right now it's a matter of getting the tech to market and proving it works for consumers. Given the relatively low number of Intel phones in circulation, it may be in their interest to license the "client" portion to facilitate adoption.
