Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, the first smartphones that the Finnish handset vendor Nokia has unveiled to the world with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system on board, also come with wireless charging capabilities.
Ever since making the two devices official, Nokia has been touting their wireless charging capabilities, which make them unique to the Windows Phone ecosystem.
In order to be able to take advantage of these features, however, users will need proper equipment, and price tags for wireless charging accessories
for these devices have been unveiled.
Unfortunately, it seems that users will have to pay quite a lot to enjoy the feature; at least this is what the pricing list that online retailer Clove UK has unveiled.
The full pricing list of these accessories goes as follows:
- Nokia Lumia 820 wireless charging shell – £16.66 (£19.99 inc. VAT) ($32)
- Nokia Lumia 820/920 wireless charging plate – £48.83 (£54.99 inc. VAT) ($88)
- Nokia Lumia 820/920 wireless charging stand – £58.32 (£69.99 inc. VAT) ($112)
- Nokia Lumia 820/920 wireless charging pillow by Fatboy – £66.66 (£79.99 inc. VAT) ($128)
- Nokia JBL Playup portable wireless speaker – £120.83 (£144.99 inc. VAT) ($233)
No specific release date for these has been provided as of yet, but we could expect for Nokia to make them available as soon as the Windows Phone 8-powered
Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are put up for sale (something that might happen in the beginning of the next month, according to rumors).
Users in the UK who would like to purchase any of these accessories can now head over to Clove UK
for reservations and for additional info on the matter. They will also be able to choose different color versions for them, the online retailer notes.
“We will be adding other accessories from the range as soon as we have pricing available and will provide an availability update once we have a more precise release date,” the company also noted on its website.
