Nokia has just launched their latest flagship device - the Lumia 920 and the mid range Lumia 820. To go along with their new devices they have some new accessories. The stand out feature of each device is obviously wireless charging which is based on the Qi Standard, which incidentally was developed out of a need to conduct electricity around water.
The JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker takes advantage of the handsets NFC and wireless charging. All you have to do it place your Lumia 920 or 820 on top of the speaker and it will be instantly paired via NFC to transmit music over Bluetooth. The kicked is that while this is going on, you'll be charging your phone wirelessly. No word yet on if you'll have to take out a second mortgage or not.
