The document covers a "controller configured to determine whether a mutual resonance occurs between a target resonator and a source resonator; and a modulator configured to modulate data based on whether the mutual resonance occurs." The filing explains a system that includes both a transmitting and receiving component of wireless power.
According to the company, wireless power transmission communication system could find application in areas of cell phones, wireless TV, as well as wireless healthcare devices that are inserted in a body. For example, it "may be used for […] wirelessly transmitting power to a bandage-type device for measuring a heartbeat."
There was no information when this technology could become commercially available. However, we would not be surprised if we saw this technology emerge in a Samsung phone in 2013.

If it can send power from a portable handheld device, then go for it because it would be kinda cool
updating an E-Paper screen or something from your phone with a swipe so you don't have to keep the phone on to display information (for example, updating the e-ink display with a news article or map so you don't drain your phone's battery).
If that is correct it would be incredible, especially if it offered enough bandwidth to stream music. It would also need to offer a distance greater than the pocket to the ear without much power loss. That would allow wireless earbud headphones that don't look like a brick hanging from your ear. Google Glass could increase its capabilities without much worry of adding more battery weight to the eye-wear. Sounds cool to me... but again, this article is too vague and I'm probably just wishfully dreaming that this is a revolutionary technology.
this patent trademark stuff is more in the bad way in influence the evolution of technology? is more like keeping your idea or stuff you can come up first and patent it by law enforcement protect it to be your personal belonging. magic stuff who came first who own it.
Tesla demonstrated a working wifi power transmission device back in the late 19th century with efficiency rating of 30 to 40% at the time, which he supposedly perfected before the early 20th century.
This merger of technologies is only logical... and relatively simple for technology of decades ago... let alone today.
Seeing how we live in a monetary system however, good luck seeing such technologies in the general population use short after the first prototypes have been made - which is predominantly determined by fictional 'cost' (that has nothing to do with resources or technological ability to do something in abundance).
