The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb, the official wireless charger for LG’s Nexus smartphone, is likely going to be shipping out starting February 16th with Google sending out shipping confirmations to those who ordered the device when it went on sale yesterday.
Yesterday, Google quietly started offering the Nexus 4’s Wireless Charging Orb, its wireless charging accessory, for the first time. The device had shown up at third party retailers previously but until yesterday, it had not been available through the Google Play Store. The accessory, which is listed as shipping out in less than a week, is currently listed as shipping out in less than a week. And according to Google, it’s currently estimated to start shipping February 16th.
Google has begun sending out shipping confirmations to those who pre-ordered the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb through the Google Play Store. The confirmation says that the shipping date for the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb is estimated to be February 16th. That’s four days from now. Of course, because that’s an estimated date, it could be that it ships out earlier or even later but at this point, this is the timing that Google is offering.
The device comes with two day shipping which means if that shipping time holds up, Nexus 4 owners should be seeing their accessory show up at the beginning of next week.
The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb is a Qi compatible charger that wirelessly charges the Nexus 4 and keeps the device in both landscape or portrait mode. As we’ve pointed out, the wireless charger is a much desired accessory for use on a desk or a nightstand. Users can also choose to view photos with the new Day Dream mode in Android 4.2 while the device is charging.
The accessory made its debut alongside the Nexus 4 back in November but until yesterday’s arrival, Google had remained mum on its launch and release.
