Google has just announced the release of two of its premium accessories for its latest Nexus devices. Unfortunately, while these items can be brought directly from Google Play Store, they are available in limited markets only.

First up is the new Nexus Wireless Charger that we first saw back in October when the Nexus 5 was announced. As mentioned, this is a revamp of the semi-orb shaped wireless charger that Google made available with the Nexus 4. This charger lies flat on a table or any flat surface and holds devices in place via magnets. While the Nexus Wireless Charger uses the Qi wireless charging standard, only the Nexus 4, the Nexus 5, and the 2013 Nexus 7 are officially advertised as supported.

For owners of the Nexus 7 tablet, both old and new models, Google is throwing in the new neoprene sleeve. This sleeve is tailored to protect the tablet with padding and microfiber fur lining. An asymmetrical zipper makes it easy to pull out the tablet, while an outer pocket was designed to take your Nexus 7 accessories with you wherever you go. The Nexus 7 sleeve comes in four color options of black, gray, yellow, and bright red.

While both charger and sleeve have launched in some markets, Google is now making these premium accessories available in more areas. The Nexus Wireless Charger, which is priced at $49.99 in the US, is now available in Australia, India, Japan, and Korea. The tablet sleeve, on the other hand, has a wider coverage and can be bought in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, the US and the UK. It also sells for $29.99.

    I got a RAVPower Qi wireless charger a couple of weeks before the Google annouced the nexus wireless charger. It works great. I’m happy with it.
