Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb Pre-Orders Start
The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb pre-orders started this evening, allowing Nexus 4 owners to pick up the wireless charger for $60 plus shipping.
Pure Mobile posted the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb product page earlier today, and is now taking pre-orders with shipping starting in two to four weeks. Shipping ranges from free to $19.99 for Express shipping.
Pure Mobile is the only U.S. retailer currently selling the official Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb.
The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb is a qi compatible charger that wirelessly charges the Nexus 4 and keeps the device in landscape or portrait mode. The wireless charger is a much desired accessory for use on a desk or a nightstand. Users can choose to view photos with the new Day Dream mode in Android 4.2 while the device is charging.
This is billed as the official LG WCP400 so users can expect the official dock, which carries the same name as the model we saw listed on foreign retailer Dustin Home last week.
Google has yet to announce the official retail pricing for the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb, but we expect users are not paying much more than Google will charge if the dock arrives in the Google Play Store. Google did not provide an estimate on the release date to Gotta Be Mobile.
It took the Nexus 4 wireless charger several months to get this far, and with the pent up demand for the Nexus 4 device itself the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb may be tough to find.
Users looking for the best wireless charger for the Nexus 4 should check out the LG WCP400 Wireless Charging Orb as not all qi chargers work with the Nexus 4.
