Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Port listed on Google Play
The Wireless Charging Port for the Google Nexus 4 has appeared inside the Play store, there's no word on pricing or availability though
Google’s Nexus 4 Wireless Charging orb is now listed inside Google’s Play store, three months after the smartphone's launch. The Orb is priced at $59.99 in the US but Google has yet to confirm how much it will cost once launched in the UK.
The Nexus 4 charging orb ships with both a micro USB cable and power cable. There’s no HDMI-port and no additional USB ports. It’s a wireless charging port like Nokia’s Wireless Charger and HP’s TouchStone, and nothing more.
Here’s Google’s official description of the product:
‘Charge your Nexus 4 wirelessly with this Qi inductive charger. Its angled surface provides easy visibility of your phone while charging. This elegant device was designed specifically for your Nexus 4 -- no clunky add-ons or accessories needed.’
Google’s Nexus 4 Wireless Charger - like Nokia’s Wireless Charger - is based the Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi standard. Google says it takes approximately four hours to fully charge the Nexus 4 and the accessory is only available in black.

'We have no details at the moment for a UK launch,' said Google's UK Press Office.
