    I have looked, but I cannot find anything regarding the wireless charging shell. When might this be available and for how much? I will admit, Nokia converted me to wireless charging and I cannot ever use another phone without it. Now I just want to find a way for my hybrid Windows 8 Laptop to charge wirelessly.

    Please advise if you have information.

    I know it's on the way and I wouldn't expect it to take too long to become available.

    It might be announced when the 1020 becomes available.

    I do not think that information is out yet...anything now would just be rumors...BUT...I'd expect the case to be $40-$50 and release within the month. And it might help with your searching, but it is "CC-3066" product code.

    All three colors were available on AT&T Premier when I ordered my phone (VERY early). I ordered a white one. They soon disappeared. My phone was sent out last night with the charging grip (did not order, but do want). On my order status page, there's a white accessory that's "processing". I'm hoping AT&T get's these in when everybody else does. I don't think they're actually in stock anywhere. I'm still waiting to see what I was charged for.

    Not to excited about the $40 for this, then the $80 for the grip, then there's the need for the wireless plate charger....on top of the initial $300

    this is an expensive experiment, owned the 808, know what it's capable of, the OS just drove me nuts, have high hopes for this, just damn expensive to buy into it lol.

    Amazon has listings for the Black/Yellow ones (out of stock of course) but I'm curious, is there any reason to think there won't be a White Charging Cover as well?

    I picked one up at the MS Store over at University Village in Seattle. They only had black in stock, and only three of them.

    So far, I'm not very happy with it. It's well designed, for what it is, but it adds that plastic lip onto what is otherwise a smooth, rounded edge of the 1020. Bleah!

    I agree. I also feel like the corners could be tighter. I purchased mine from the MS Store, too.

    $26.43 right now. Still "out of stock" but sooner or later they'll be in, I'm sure. Having a real price now should be a good sign.

    I'm waiting for a Microsoft Store near me (or online) to have them in stock. I have a gift card that I'd like to use. Though, that reduced price is pretty tempting/awesome...

    I wish the shell also came with extra battery space like the camera grip does.

    Got it from Microsoft store. Can not get it to consistently charge. I'm very frustrated as I moved up from the 920 and have three of the standing charge plates (one for work, one for office, one for bedroom). Wife only needs one, and now appears the other two are wasted... I hate wired charging.

    I had this issue. Have you tried gently pulling the wire connector prongs? That seemed to resolve the issue for me.

    There are a couple of other threads regarding charging cover issues. Seems that some are experiencing this problem as you are and I did.

    I picked up the charging cover in my local Microsoft Store. So far, I'm impressed. It evens out the camera hump in the back, protecting the camera when you set it down on a hard surface and it doesn't have any issues charging. It also doesn't add enough bulk to be a concern, at least not to me. It's nice being able to simply set my phone down and charge it now.
