Google finally unveils Nexus 4 wireless charging accessory

Google has made the aptly named Nexus 4 Wireless Charger available to fans of the new flagship.
The device is available through the Google Play Store, and ships "within a week."

For $60 (before tax and shipping), users receive the nice looking orb, which is Qi inductive. "Its angled surface provides easy visibility of your phone while charging. This elegant device was designed specifically for your Nexus 4 -- no clunky add-ons or accessories needed," says Google.

When docked, the phone will reveal the battery power, and weather, news and sports. Google says it takes a bit over 3 hours to fully charge the device with the charger.

This is really innovative. I wonder if the wireless charging is more or less efficient than wired-charging.

I can see this is going to be the standard for all future smartphones.

Innovative..? This type of charger has existed for smartphones for at least 3-4 years on the market.
