The Nokia DT-601 is listed as being in stock by a number of third party traders on the Amazon UK website, with prices starting from £42.41. Primary Amazon UK stock is due to arrive in early December, with an estimated price of £39.99. Other retailers including MobileFun, Expansys, and Clove are also accepting pre-orders, with the first stock expected to arrive on December 9th.
Here's how we described the product when it was first announced:
The DT-601's plate is made of polycarbonate plastic, but a soft coating has been applied, which Nokia says means it feels more natural in your hand and also provides some extra grip when a phone is placed on top of it. When a compatible phone is correctly placed on the charging pad a LED on the side of the pad will illuminate to indicate that charging is taking place.
Unlike Nokia's previous wireless charging accessories, power for the DT-601 is provided via USB-A cable. This means it can be plugged into any USB device, or a wall plug with a USB-A port (e.g. Nokia AC-60 charger). In common with many of Nokia's other accessories the DT-601 is also available in a range of colours: bright red, yellow, cyan, white and black.
An obvious comparison can be made with Nokia's DT-900 Wireless Charging Plate accessory. The DT-601 has the advantage in being smaller, but it's worth noting using USB as the source of power may, in some circumstances, result in slower charging (e.g. plugged into typical laptop USB port).
