Nokia has also confirmed the availability of an induction charging accessory (a charging pad) for the Lumia 920. You simply place the phone onto the pad to charge its battery, thus eliminating the need for a charging port. This allows you to use the same power supply across multiple devices that support this feature. The handset will come preloaded with Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, and City Lens (an augmented reality app). Users will get to choose from yellow, red, white, grey, and black variants of the smartphone. However, there's no info yet regarding its launch date and pricing.
