I've read that any Qi standard charger will work. We shouldn't have to get the stock one. At least we can price shop.

No, wireless charging is a bit slower than a cable

I guess it depends on the price...

The N4 will be compatible with any wireless charging source as long as it supports the standard.

Touchstone chargers can be had on eBay for around $6 so I will be picking up a few from there unless Google's are pretty cheap.

Is anyone else excited about the possibility of finally being able to buy a good universal car dock with wireless charging and not having to buy a new one now on with new phones (assuming that the new phones start coming with wireless charging) ?

Can we do cable charging + inductive charging at the same time?

Will it charge faster?

Default Wireless charging future

Imagine one day in future where universal wireless charging orb is a standard on every office desk. Can't wait for that day to come.

Can't imagine them pricing it too high, judging by the price of the nexus 4 itself, I'd imagine the wireless charger will be priced what it's truly worth, probably around $20.

If it were apple selling it, it'd be $100

I just bought 2 of the touchstone pads for 5 bucks each off eBay just in case they do work for it. Even if they're slower than the nexus versions at least I have backups
