Photos show wireless charging case for the Nokia Lumia 1020
The cover not only allows you to wirelessly recharge your handset (and you can imagine how fast the battery will run down with all of those pictures that you're going to take), but also protects the phone from your butterfingers, like a regular case might. The Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with a 2000mAh cell, but that is asking for the gerbil on the wheel to be doing an awful lot of spinning.
We do not have any pricing information for the wireless charging cover, and we're not sure when it will be available. Hopefully it will be ready for purchase when the phone launches. That date is July 26th for AT&T customers in the U.S., where the phone is an exclusive in the country.

Thicker doesn't necessarily mean heavier. What's more, I bet it doesn't add much of thickness, as you can see, it equalizes with the camera hump.

Uh. Thicker DOES mean heavier in this case (lol case...get it...). If you add anything to anything you are adding weight to it. How much weight is the question.

Looks nice indeed. Though I'd rather use the Camera Grip case or leave it naked on daily use.

Camera grip case also comes with an additional battery. With the wireless charger, you still have only the built-in battery. If you are running out of juice with the original battery, a wireless charging option isn't going to get you through the day. But the additional battery in the camera grip just might be the answer.

Nokia, Microsoft, and Windowsphone!.. This is THE third option... And, we're lucky to have it.
