    This isn't new, this is the same charging pad they showed when the Nexus 4 was first announced. It's been AWOL since. If it ever comes out I would consider it, but for now it's just vaporware.

    Lol, its like one of those concept cars at the auto show (lots of “oooo's and ahhh's) ...but then it just never seems to materialize.

    And to answer the OPs query, I would seriously consider it...up to the $50-$70 range. Too much past that and ID start to balk I think.

    Maybe. I managed to find an LG WCP-700 Qi charger in a Verizon store and it works great with the OEM bumpers on my N4. I could use another for work, but the price has to be there. And I'm wondering if it works with the bumpers.

    Probably not. I use my phone while it's charging and wireless charging just doesn't lend itself to that use case.

    Depending on the price, yes. Over 75$ though, no.

    And hopefully it'll charge faster than the Lumia wireless charger I got (and can't return to VZW even the next day without losing 35$ of of the 55$) that only does about 1%/15mins!

    Not me. I never buy the device specific extras, like this, or car docks, or desk docks. I end up getting a new phone (the next Nexus) every year, and none of these items work for most other devices, not to mention they are always so late coming out. It's easy to drop a couple hundred dollars or more on this stuff, which is pretty close to the price of a new phone.

    Absolutely, if the price is right. If you had used wireless charging before, you would have gotten one definitely. I have 4 wireless chargers with my WebOS devices and they are awesome.

    i wish the nokia charger worked on our phones cause it would have been a cheap alternative and it was a nice charge pad.
    also, i dont know how good the lg will be and if it will lay on it properly charging with a case like my cruzerlite.
    my eye is on the TYLT charger. nice design and rather have a more solid stand to put it on and can use it for future phones.

    BUILT TO TYLT

    Probably not I like to use it while charging and output charge is too low.

    If it is cheap enough cause it would look good on my desk but probably not. I just don't get the huge advantage of wireless charging, I use my phone while it charges a lot of times and with this every time I picked it up it would stop charging.

    You mean the orb of myth? If they ever decide to awaken it from slumber, I'd like to have one, but seeing how hard it is for them to stock a ring made of rubber and plastic, i don't know how easy it will be to get the charger.

    i don't see the point to wireless charging. the dock still has to be plugged into a power source and you can't use your phone while it's charging.

    with a regular charger, at least you can still use your phone. and since either solution needs a power source to be plugged into, you might as well just carry around a charger versus a dock and an ac adapter to connect it.

    i didnt know... so you're saying when its on the charge pad like the TYLT, the phone can't be used (press power, unlock, play) while on the dock? hmm.

    for me, if i do end up getting one for home or office... i would find it convenient to have a dock to just set it on instead of grabbing for the cable end on the table and unplugging and plugging everytime i need to go in and out of the office/house and take the phone with me. if i do need to use the phone while charging, if you can't while on the pad, then you just take it off, use it, then lay it back... i'm not one to use it for hours while plugged... i find myself one to use it for 5-10 minutes here and there while charging.

    If the price is right I may splurge.

    I wanted one of those charging orbs but I ordered the lg wcp-700 and it works great so I don't see the need for this anymore and I only paid $40 for the one I have

    The convenience for me is being able to quickly and effortlessly pick up and place the device without having to plug it in. As a developer, I'm continually picking up and putting down the phones and tablets I have. I use an NFC tag on the inductive base, and use it to switch the hotspot on if it is not already. ADB over the hotspot, and I'm good to go.

    As for using the device while it is charging wirelessly, that shouldn't be an issue. While I have yet to set up my N4 for inductive charging, I've used Android devices in the past that allowed use while charging via induction. There is no reason for interaction to be prevented, other than the fact that it slows the rate at which the battery will charge.

    I think the" using it while charging" issue has more to do with being able to move the phone around at the end of its cable versus having to lay the phone down on a charging pad.

    Just preordered the TYLT Vu charger from the other thread. Interesting - no shipping charges. Says available on 4/1. Already using the Nokia DT-910 w/ my N4 & satisfied thus far. Charging is a bit slower than plugged in, but the point is that it's much easier to just grab and go, since I plug in my phone on my desk most times anyway.

    imo it's docked so nicely like a stand that i would personally use it while its on the dock.

    Its definatly worth getting, I have the Lumia 920 and use a wireless dock every night before going to sleep. I suppose that's the best use for it anyways.

    In my case, I have the wireless charger downstairs in the kitchen and when I get home and am doing things around the house, I can just place the phone on my LG WCP-700 and let it charge while I am doing whatever.

    I can then simply pick it up and either go upstairs or leave the house, no fuss, no muss. Could I just as easily use a cord, yep but this just looks cooler.

    Saves all the wear and tear on the port to charge it wirelessly while you are doing other things. Can't be on the phone all the time...
