The Lost Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb Pops at Retailer, but Out of Stock

January 31, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

You remember that nice looking wireless charging orb that Google showed off with the Nexus 4 back in late-October? Yeah, well it’s been popping at some retailers lately. Although still out of stock, we are seeing price tags of around $60. Which is right around the price we thought it would go on sale for.

It’s normal with Nexus accessories, retailers and Google always struggle to get the accessories on store shelves. Although with the Nexus 4 launch, they did also launch the bumper. Even though that sold out quicker than the Nexus 4 did. In other Android news , it finally looks like they’ve caught up on Nexus 4 orders. The device made it’s return to the Play Store on Tuesday and is still in stock right now. At least in the US.

The retailer, Pure Mobile, has a listing for the wireless charging orb but it does say “out of stock” and on the listing page there is no indication as to when it’ll be in stock to ship. Which is similar to what happened with the Nexus 7 dock, before people were finally able to get their hands on the device a few weeks ago. Like we said earlier, the price is set at $59.99, but that includes a 30-day return policy, along with a 1 year Manufacturer Warranty.

So there you have it. The Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb does indeed exist. But when will it ever become available for us to purchase? I’d say about another month or two. In the past Nexus accessories usually become available about 6 months after the device goes on sale. So we still have a few months to go. Now, we just hope that LG made enough for everyone that wants one. We don’t want a repeat of the Nexus 4 orders, right?

Thoughts on the price of the Nexus 4 wireless charging Orb? Personally, I think it’s a bit much, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
