Retailer accepting Nexus 4 wireless charging orb pre-sales

We’ve been wondering when we might be able to get our hands on the wireless charging orb for the Nexus 4. While we still don’t have a clear idea of when to expect it we can at least take solace in the fact that we’re close enough that pre-sales are now being accepted. PureMobile listed the device earlier today, and it initially indicated the accessory was out of stock. That listing has since been changed for the purposes of selling the device ahead of launch.

The retailer put out a shipment estimate of 2-4 weeks, though if the Nexus 7 desktop dock was anything to go by then we won’t put too much stuck into the estimation until it actually begins arriving at users’ doorsteps. This is quite the perfect timing as Google has seemingly received a ton of Nexus 4 stock to facilitate the insane demand that followed its launch. Many customers have been able to submit orders for the phone, and some have even already gotten shipment notifications.

Wireless charging is nothing new, but this particular device is quite sexy looking and it acts as a stand for the Nexus 4 when propped upright. You can put the device on it in either portrait or landscape orientation so unless you need extra multimedia capabilities this pretty much solves a lot of folks’ issue of needing a desktop dock.

You’ll be able to kill those two birds with just one $59.99 stone, but since we can’t vouch for the reliability and track record of PureMobile we’ll remind you to place your order with caution (it looks safe enough, but you never know). Head there to get started.

    US only, guess I’m going to have to wait another 12 months for it to come to Australia.

    For $60? I think I’ll continue to use a standard wall wart.

    Watch it be cheaper on the Play Store. :P

    Anyone know if this will work with a case on or will I have to switch to a bumper?

    Not sure I want to be balancing my Nexus 4 on a spherical device, look like an accident waiting to happen. Will wait on the reviews for this one before buying.

    @disqus_8ArZynoeqG:disqus: It has a rubberized surface and a magnet built in to keep your N4 in place.
    @google-684e1f6e03585bff3d5690c22d2a52e1:disqus: Theoretically it would work with a case (inductive charging can go as far as a centimeter or two) but the magnet might not hold the N4 on very well with a case….
