AT&T and Nokia have finally launched the much awaited Lumia 920. Nokia Lumia 920 is a great device and I’ve said this in several related articles published by me previously. It has everything one would expect from a perfect feature smartphone, and one of the best features I loved about this device, apart from the PureView camera of course, is the wireless charging capability.
Wireless charging isn’t really new to us. Wireless charging or induction charging has been around since a long time. The technology is widely used in several China made electric trimmers and other cheap electronics, and it’s not really a big deal. We’ve also seen this technology being used on Palm’s Pre handset, and the recently announced Google Nexus 4 made by LG has it too. Coming back to the Lumia topic, it was previously said that AT&T will be giving out free charging plates to early adopters as a notion of goodwill, but looks like the plan may be part of a bigger proposition.
A UK seller named Phones4U has given a link and details on how to get a free charging plate with your 820 or 920 purchase. Below is an excerpt from the terms & conditions related to the offer:
“Opening date for applications is 16/11/12. Closing date for receipt of applications is midnight 30/01/13. 4. The offer is subject to availability. Customers are only eligible to redeem once per Nokia Lumia 820/ 920 purchased, while promotional phone stocks last. No cash alternatives in whole or in part. 5. The offer can be redeemed by visiting www.nokiafreecharger.com, 14 days after purchase and entering the unique code printed on this sticker and IMEI number which came with the phone (found on the side of your Nokia box). Customers must then complete an online form containing their name, address, mobile phone number, email address, date of purchase and date of birth. 6. The Free Wireless Charging Plate will be sent within 28 days of valid application. Only applications that adhere fully to the terms and conditions are valid. The Promoter reserves the right to verify any application. “
The site, nokiafreecharger.com, that is mentioned above appears very similar to the site which hosted the free-Lumia 710 back-cover offer earlier this year where in which a user could apply for free add on accessory on purchase of a 710 smartphone. The offer seems to be the same, except that it is Nokia wireless charging plate this time around. Other details reveal that the deal will be offered from November 2nd through December 31st, whereas application process will start only on November 16th. In order to redeem this offer, the customer is required to visit the site within 14 days from the date of purchase. On the site, the customer will be asked to enter the unique IMEI number and fill out an application in order to receive the accessory within 28 days.
