Google has finally released the Nexus 4 wireless charging orbs for sale in the Google Play store for $59.99, though it’s only available in the US. No news when it will be available internationally yet. The little half-spherical device docks with the Nexus 4 using magnets on both devices. The phone sits on an angle and can be oriented in either portrait or landscape that can display photos, news from Google Currents, and other information when docked using a new feature in Android 4.2 called “Daydream.” The Nexus 4 orbs bear a resemblance to the discontinued Palm Touchstone and incorporates the Qi wireless charging standard. Incidentally, Nexus 4 units have come back in stock in the Play Store after being sold out for a few months after Google underestimated initial demand.
