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.
