Wireless charging pad for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 on the way

The Verge, devices with magnets will stick to the device, but the charging pad isn't slanted like the orb, so you might not need the magnets. And, the charging pad is said to be square, but the base is smaller than the charging surface itself, which will likely help it to hold the Nexus 7.The wireless charging pad will support the Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (2013), and we can assume that it would also work with any other Qi standard compatible devices like the Nexus 4 or even a Nokia Lumia. According to
Google has said that the pad will be made available sometime today in the Google Play Store, but there is no word on when it will show up in the store or how much the pad will cost. But, we'll be sure to update this when it is available.

yea I had the Orb with my Nexus 4 and I was never able to get the thing to stay on. It would always slide off after about 10 mins. I ended up getting a Nokia one and it obviously stayed on better. I do miss having that ability.

All I can say is thank goodness they went with the Qi standard. Screw the powermatters alliance. All they're doing is trying to profit at the cost of destroying the possibility of having a wireless charging standard for the world.
