    I didn't hear anything about Google announcing an actual wireless charger yesterday but the N7 has wireless charging. Did they say whether it would use the Qi standard or not? Does anyone know of a wireless charging pad or stand on the horizon for this? Seems a shame to have wireless charging and then not have anything to charge it with.

    Yes, it uses the Qi standard.

    Anybody have any suggestions on what charger to get? Will it work with an S4 and the N7?

    I use Nokia chargers (DT-900 and DT-910) with my Droid DNA and plan on using them with my Nexus 7.

    That DT-900 looks slick! Can you charge two devices at the same time?

    I have the LG WCP-300 wireless charger which is small and pleasant to look at but a pain to use with my N4 and after spending a half day with it and the new Nexus 7 I feel like I can definitively say these two devices should not be used together. The coil in the N7 is right in the center of the back under the nexus logo and trying to get it and the charger lined up is basically a crap shoot, its far more work then plugging in the power cable which completely defeats the purpose of wireless chargers. Hopefully ill have better luck with my TYLT VU when it finally comes.

    Just picked up a Nokia DT900, a good fit and seems to be working fine. If you are with Verizon about $40 out the door with your discount $50 without.

    I might get one of those to go with my 910 I currently use for my DNA. I really hate using wires to charge anything now.

    I have the wireless charger for the HP TouchPad. Anyone know whether that will work for the new Nexus? I ordered the 32gb from Google so it isn't here yet so I can't test for myself. Supposed to ship on Wed.

    Both of the Nokia chargers I posted are silent. But, the nexus plays a short tone when charging starts. It does not make any sound after the charging starts.

    No. From what I read the HP stuff isn't qi compatible. At least it wasn't with the small touchstone.

    This is my unboxing and first look video of the Nokia wireless charger pillow by FATBOY and I show using it with my Nexus 7 (21013). It works great!

    And it does not work with the Touchpad Touchstone either. I tried it on mine. That would have been nice.

    I haven't tried yet, as I've yet to pick up the new Nexus 7. The HP TouchPad wireless charger (which I have) is proprietary and does not adhere to the Qi standard. My guess is it will only charge the TouchPad. I don't think you'll risk anything to try. I'd simply be astonished if it worked.

    I use the TYLT VU wireless charger. I got it for my Nexus 4 because the phone kept slipping off the wireless orb. I use the orb at work but it's fussy. At least when it's right next to me I can watch to see if the phone is slipping. At night that's not so easy. The VU works perfectly with my N4 and the new Nexus 7!

    The N7 also charges on the orb. I haven't tried long enough to see if it too slides off like my N4 does, though. Perhaps the N7's back surface will grab better than the glass back of the N4. It looks kind of neat on the orb - like it's floating on my desk surface.

    In January 2013 I pre-ordered from TYLT on their website. Then there was a delay, and then they cancelled the pre-order in February.Some time later they appeared on Kickstarter, and after that I was given the early bird price and first choice to order when the VU finally became available for investors in August (?). But I got mine on July 3. I am not aware of any other place than TYLT to buy the VU, but you can sign up on their site to be notified when they become available again. TYLT • VU • Wireless Charger

    Alvin, can I assume you're using it for the 2013 N7? If so, is the Vu big enough to support the N7 in portrait? And if so, more importantly, does it charge in portrait? I'm pretty sure I plan to place N7 in landscape, but am just curious. Thanks.
