ProClip USA announce HTC 8X and Lumia 920 fixed car mounts, no Qi wireless support
For many with new high-end Windows Phone 8 devices, being able to mount them in the car for some of that sweet offline navigation is the dream. Perhaps even more so for those with a Nokia Lumia 920 (or the Verizon HTC 8X) who have the Qi wireless charging on board as that promises the swift in-and-out luxury unlike anything we’ve previously seen.
ProClip USA, who make some fine custom phone holders, have just announced pre-orders for their 8X and Lumia 920 series. Ranging from fixed power for permanent setups to a cigarette lighter method to just the holder, the setups should give users an ideal setup for their car. The downside of course is it seems ProClip is not interested (or capable) of doing the whole wireless charging thing—which we think is what people really want.
Sure, sliding your phone in to the microUSB connection will charge faster and it looks effortless, but wireless charging is where it’s at these days.
Prices range from $34 for the barebones model up to $79.99 for the permanent wired setup. We’ll see about stocking them in our Store (and review 'em) when they do become available, expected in the coming weeks.
For now, you can pre-order them if you can't wait.
