The Nexus 4 wireless charging orb is available for pre-order from a Norwegian Retailer with an estimated February release date.
We first saw the Nexus 4 wireless charging orb back in November, but Google has been mum about the Nexus 4 accessory’s availability from day one.
The Nexus 4 wireless charger is an orb shaped Qi charger that charges the Nexus 4 without connecting any wires. The Nexus 4 features a built-in Qi charging and magnets to keep the phone in place when users set it on the Nexus 4 wireless charging orb.
Reddit users discovered the Nexus 4 wireless charging orb on Norwegian retailer Dustin Home, where shoppers can pre-order the accessory. The wireless charger retails for 599 kr, about $92 USD. The wireless charger will likely retail for less in the U.S. We’ve seen other Qi chargers retail for $60 to $80.
The Nexus 4 wireless charger is slated for a February 12th release date on Dustin Home. This is likely when the retailer thinks it will receive stock of the device. As we have yet to hear an official Nexus 4 wireless charging orb release date from Google or LG, this date could slip.
Shoppers may see the Nexus 4 wireless charger in the Google Play Store next month, or it could land with third-party retailers in the U.S. before making a debut alongside the devices in Google’s storefront.
While Qi is a standard, we found the Nexus 4 doesn’t charge on all Qi compatible chargers, so it’s a good idea to look closely before buying a Nexus 4 wireless charger from a third-party manufacturer.
We may see the same runaround as the Nexus 7 dock, with slipping release dates at retailers and no official release or pricing from Google or the ASUS, so don’t be surprised if the U.S. release for the Nexus 4 wireless charger slips.
