Hey Guys -

I know the wireless charging will work because of the Qi standard, but will the phone stay put? Any impressions from those who own it would be appreciated.

Re: Nexus Charging Orb - Does Magnetism work with DNA?
I could be wrong but I don't think its magnetic.. the back of the nexus is glass I think the orb is just a rubberized surface that "grab's" the back of the phone.. i.e. just friction holds it on... I think!

Nobody has the orb yet, I think. It just now became available, with shipping withing a week. Plus the shipping time. I ordered one the first day it was available, but don't expect it before the end of next week.

I'm with you on this one, because I read it would be compatible with windows 8 and htc phones. And pictures look like the two circles on top are rubber. Just what it looks like to me

I have the touchstone charger and it has magnet in it.
from what I see it is held up 80% by friction, 20% by magnetic force.
Too bad the touchstone wont work on Droid DNA otherwise I think it would be a great charging dock.

Here is a pic of the rear case of the nexus 4. I see no magnets.

We'll know soon enough. The first ones arriving tomorrow. Today, in fact. Hope I won't have to return it.
