I went to Seidio's site today to see what their progress on cases for the Nexus 5 look like and found that they have their holder page up with all of the usual cases there. Everything is showing as "Under Development" but the prices are up at least.

You can go to another phone's section and get an idea of what the cases look like. I am personally looking for a ruggedized case with a holster and a kickstand, so far it looks like the absence of Otterbox (just like the Nexus 4) means that Seidio might be the only option.

Doubtful, the official charger that is due to hit the play store sometime utilizes magnets to hold the N5 in place with the metal discs in the N5. Magnets can impact the compass and such, but not wireless charging.

A battery or an Obex case are the only things I would consider frrom Seidio.

well after doing a bit of research it seems that the N5 cases under development are very similar to their Nexus 4 cases, and their N4 cases work perfectly with wireless charging. so all there is to do now is wait patiently...

You can still click the links even though there is no product picture up and they state whether the phone can use NFC and or wireless charging on each product. Also the convert is there, a couple of them. I have an email in asking when they might release but no answer yet.
