If there is one drawback to Google’s Nexus program, it’s the fact that accessories often don’t ship until months after the actual phone. OK, so that’s a secondary problem with the Nexus 4, which itself has seen its fair share of shipping delays. The hard to obtain phone will soon have one of the niftiest accessories on the market, a wireless Qi charging station.
Wireless charging is one of the most unsung features of the latest Android flagship, and that’s in large part due to a lack of availability of a docking station. But according to one online retailer, the charging orb — in its own way resembling the Nexus Q — will begin shipping February 12th.
Norwegian retailer DustinHomehas the dock listed for 739 krone, what amounts to about $113. Of course word from a third-party retailer does not an official release date make. So who knows if this will all come to fruition, let alone for regions outside of Europe. But if all goes according to plan, we might expect to see the Qi charging orb in the Google Play Store in about month. Finger crossed.
