In a post hidden in the sidebar on CNET titled “Nokia CEO Stephen Elop: We’ll spend to break through (Q&A)” there was a picture of an accessory I had not seen before. The device looks like a mint LifeSaver candy with a micro USB plug on its side. The caption states “The wireless charging dongle, connected to a Lumia 900, powers the phone from Nokia’s charging pad”. Obviously this is a way to expand the Qi based charging accessories to more than just the Apollo hardware. I’m sure this isn’t specific to working with Lumia devices but it’s again nice to see Nokia “extend” the life of the current gen devices with accessories such as this.
