Well that was fast.  It was previously reported that the upcoming Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920 will sport wireless charging features, now a new Tweet by EVLeaks - who’s the same person that outed the 820 and 920 - has put up an image of what is being called the “Nokia Lumia Charging Pad.” Currently there only seems to be a red model, but you could bet that there’ll be other colours to match the handset. Looks very similar to how the Palm Pre operated. No other details on cost or if the Lumia 820 will get the same wireless charging feature.

    Looks cool

    • Gerhardt

      work with bb10?

  • Vineet

    Very nice

  • ActivesiN

    Looks nice, but I can’t see myself using this outside of my house.
    Seems like it would be a hassle to bring around

    • Darth Paton

      I think it is intended mainly for home use anyway

  • zzZZzz

    I think I’ll give this a shot when it comes out.

    The question is, how long will it take to charge the phone.

  • Alpha

    It would be amazing if these worked with the HP Touchpad Touchstone charger or any of the Palm wireless chargers.

  • Tomatoes

    I was hoping for something that looked more like a really thin mouse pad or just a microfiber cloth that is about the dimensions of the phone.

    The Red one is so sexy. This charging pad thing makes it even more attractive. Mmm

    • blackkey

      What do you get off to Craig?

    I’m a recent webOS convert (but still love the OS dearly), and this is something that I really miss. If this is compatoble with all Lumia devices, I may just bite.

  • montrealer

    I like the idea of wireless charging, it was about time it comes standard on a flagship phone

  • boomer

    but will it waste power when it’s not being used??

  • astudent

    This would be IDEAL (any wireless charging stand) for any beside night stand. Pop your phone on, sleep. Wake up, and grab your phone. As easy as grabbing your wallet!

  • Piff

    Does anyone if these wireless chargers are compatable with any device that can charge wirelessly?

  • pacalis

    I’m looking at the bottom of that phone and I see another Apple lawsuit.

  • Centro

    Another aspect I love for my Pre 3 & Touchpad – LONG LIVE WEBOS! Had this three years ago!

    • EvanKr

      Nice to see another webOS lover out there!

  • andy c

    i hope this works through a case.

    i would love to rock this phone without a case but my 3 year old usually has other ideas.

  • Miknitro

    Looks like a kid’s phone imo.

    • Keith

      What a bland, conservative world you must live in.

  • stylinred

    no clue on if the 820 will get this feature?

    but the 820 is pictured in that image atop the charger… (the red phone)

  • WP789

    I was deciding between Nokia and Samsung…if this is true, I guess the decision is made :)

  • tardis

    I really hope they include a wired option. I can’t see how this would work well in a moving vehicle like a car.

  • Aviation21

    I think this will drive the industry in the right direction… I can see this being a very common way of charging our phones in the near future. I love innovation!
