Video LOL: Nokia Wireless Charging Plate sneakily pushing Nexus 4 off whilst charging :p

Maybe I’m in a weird revision mood but I found it funny to see this video where the Nokia Wireless Charging Plate slowly pushes off the Nexus 4 off its surface, as if to reject this non-Nokia heathen. It works as it charges wirelessly via electromagnetism. The slippery glass surface has no friction and just […]
