Wireless charging car holder updated to support the Lumia 1520

We're big fans of the Nokia CR-200 car accessory. Not only does it give your Lumia handset a prominent position within your vehicle, but it ensures your phone stays juiced through Qi wireless charging. Nokia has 'updated' the CR-200 to CR-201 for those with larger devices like the Lumia Icon, Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520.

What's new with this 'updated' version of the CR-201? It's easy to update software, but what about hardware? Here's what Nokia say's is new with the CR-200:

"The updated CR-200 has a wider compatibility than the previous version, including now the Lumia 1520. And is compatible with most Lumia phones supporting Qi wireless charging."

And there you have it. Some users with the Lumia Icon/930 noted that the camera button would be pressed in the older CR-200. This updated version should hopefully address that and accommodate large devices, like the Lumia 1520, with a bit more ease.

Those on AT&T with the Lumia 1520 of course don't have the Qi wireless charging standard. But where there's a will, there's a way. If you're willing, you can add Qi wireless charging to your AT&T Lumia 1520 with a bit of work.

Update: The new CR-200 is called CR-201, appropriately and it can be had for $98 from Mobile Fun, a reputable site that we've purchased items from in the past. Thanks, Andrew, for the update

Anyone out there thinking of picking up the updated CR-200? We're not seeing it up for sale yet at retailers, hopefully it comes soon. We'll order one as soon as we can and let you guys and gals know how it measures up.
