Mine will be delivered today.
Mine is scheduled to arrive today.
Mine are also out for delivery. I can't wait to check them out!
Mine just arrived. Plugged it in and charging, and it even works though my case! YES!
Got it. Everyone in the office is envious.
Im dying at work its just sitting at home in a box not charging my phone poor thing
My Orb came in the mail a couple hours ago and I made a short unboxing video.
My Nexus orb arrived today and is truly a neat device. Charges pretty fast though so far I've noticed it doesn't charge to 100%. Anyone else notice that is the case?
Now the question is do I leave it at home, or take it to work?
Mine charged to 100%.
Mine charged to 100% with the Orb.
Dammit! I just bought a charging pad too!
When I "just" I mean about a month or so ago. This isn't available in the UK yet so I might as well just stick with my pad.
Quick question...when you put the phone on the orb does the screen come on to show its charging? One of the things I hate about my pad that it makes my phone do that.
Yeah, the screen turns on.
I missed the delivery yesterday for mine, very lame. I'm assuming you can turn the screen off after you put it on there?
Cool, I can't be having a bright light right next to my bed like that.
Yeah, I have CyanogenMod running, so my LED lights up when I am charging. I am going to see if I can disable the screen truning on while charging. Also, I'll look in developer options to see if you can disable it.
Edit: I don't see any such setting.
I'm sure once it's been out for a little bit they'll be on top of that.
I'm not talking "power", I'm talking "current", an actual quantity of electrons 0.8 * (6.241
One thing I noticed about this Orb, well maybe its a 4.2.2 issue, is that the phone doesn't always make a sound when its placed on the Orb. Its very inconsistent and because of that, I'm not always sure I have my phone on the thing right unless I turn the screen on.
Anyone else getting inconsistent tones when placing your phone on the Orb?
I cant see paying for this at this price unless this will work with every successive phone I purchase. If it only works with this phone then it wont make sense considering how long I keep a phone. I do think its pretty awesome though.
I think Wireless charging will become more and more standard on phones to come. However, it depends if Qi becomes THE standard...
Thats my hesitation.
