Why can't a mobile be more like a cordless kettle?

You've missed the point

"...most of the tech industry likes cables. They mean you can charge and transfer data at the same time."

Actually cables mean you can charge and do everything at the same time. I don't want to run out of charge (happens a lot still with smartphones) and have to stop using the device because it's going for a lie down on its special electric cushion. Wireless charging will be more useful when it happens inside a reasonably large volume, not just on a small plane.
