Wireless charging seems to be taking over the smartphone space as many handset makers are making their smartphones wireless charging capable. The Nexus 4, launched in November last year, is also wireless charging capable and reports indicate that a wireless charging orb will make its way to shelves in February this year with a price tag of $114.
Recently a Norwegian retailer, Dustin Home, listed the official orb-shaped Nexus 4 wireless charger for pre-order on its Web site. Dustin Home has indicated the shipping date of Feb. 12, which suggests that LG and Google may also start selling the wireless orb soon.
The wireless charger orb is round in shape and flat on top with a Nexus logo. If you wish to charge your Nexus 4 wirelessly, then you simply need to rest your handset at the top of orb.
Currently, wireless charging may be treated as a novelty by many smartphone owners; however, we will have to wait and see if wireless charging becomes a necessity in the near future.
The Nexus 4 is available from various carriers but the handset is still sold out from Google Play Store and many smartphone enthusiasts are still waiting to lay their hands on the latest handset.
It will be interesting to see if the wireless orb gains similar popularity as the Nexus 4 and if LG is able to keep up with the demand.
