Going wire-free

The device will also have wireless charging capabilities. Here, it is set up on top of a "Fatboy charging pillow" that users will need to purchase in addition to the Lumia 920. Nokia has teamed up with Virgin Atlantic and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to provide wireless charging stations.
