Nokia Lumia 930 will be bundled with free wireless charging pad?
Since the Nokia Lumia 930 will offer built-in support for Qi wireless charging, Nokia has decided to bundle the phone with a free wireless charging pad, according to a report published on Saturday. Nokia also offered built-in support for Qi wireless charging with the Nokia Lumia 920. The manufacturer made it an option with other models like the Nokia Lumia 925, Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia Lumia 720. Owners of those three handsets have to switch to a special back cover with Qi embedded, in order for their phone to recharge wirelessly.

If true, this move will no doubt help Qi's push to become the wireless standard globally. Still, the technology faces some competition, even inside Nokia. The Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, an AT&T exclusive in the U.S., offers built-in wireless charging from Qi competitor PMA.

Whether support for wireless charging is built-in to a handset, or requires a special back cover to be snapped in, a wireless charging pad is required to juice up the battery on the phone. If Nokia does bundle such a pad for free with the Nokia Lumia 930, it could end up being a big move toward wider acceptance of wireless charging in the U.S.

I've been far from a fan of windows phone OS, but Nokia is really building excitement with their new products. The build quality especially of their newer phones, plus the better specs and newer features that'll come with 8.1, they're going places that's for sure!

The hardware is great, but the software is crappy, in my opinion.

Touchwiz isn't a good place to judge Android. My Droid Mini rarely ever lags and I've never had to restart it, because it's close to stock.

At least you can change the launcher. For that matter you can change the UI on any Android for that matter. Hey look at Nokia and their Nokia X Android phones. Even Nokia made Android look and feel like a WP device with Microsoft apps and services.

Yes but what you fail to mention is that even changing it it still looks like the same scrappy ui with slight changes.

touchwiz is the right place to judge android since the majority by a huge gap of the android community are using sammy phones running touchwiz !

I'm so friggin excited!! I just really damn hope they'll announce that it'll come to US, because so far they've said it's going everywhere but here. If that will be the case it'll be a huge disappointment, unless of course they release something better for the US.

Because everyone wants to be on Verizon, amiright?

Agreed... Being only on vzn makes it out of reach for me.

Same for me, but that means we have things like amazon to purchase the phone. And with it being international it probably has more radio bands, could be wrong.

I can't wait to get my first lumia, the 930 orange with free wireless charger. Go Nokia.

Nice sentiment but I don't see the logic. This phone is not going to be released in the US. At least not in the foreseeable future. How does this help establish qi acceptance in the US?

Furthermore, realistically, Nokia doesn't have the pull here to standardize it. Only Samsung and Apple have that.

Tbh, I'm a little disappointed the phone won't have Glance Screen (Nokia's version of Active notification).

25. papss unregistered

Say what? No glance? Between glance and knock those are features that are deal breakers for me.

He is wrong, there is Glance screen, only it wasn't mentioned in specs on official site, but I am sure it's just Nokia's mistake.
