    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?

    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.

    I missed the delivery yesterday for mine, very lame. I'm assuming you can turn the screen off after you put it on there?

    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.

    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...
