Nokia debuts BH-121, the tiny tile music player with Bluetooth and NFC

Nokia headset tile

Staying with its colour scheme of everything cyan, red, yellow and black, Nokia just debuted the new BH-121 Bluetooth Stereo Headset.

Nokia is all about the colour and the tiles. This little device is only 39x39x12mm big which is about the same (yet slimmer) than your average box of matches. Using a clip you can secure it to your clothes or somewhere in your car perhaps.

Given its small size, you’ll be surprised to find a play button, volume controls as well as track control buttons arranged along the edges. Furthermore, the little tile has a battery LED indicator and a microUSB port to charge.

The tile will pop up on your Windows Phone together with all the other tiles. When connected to your phone you can interact with the BH-121 right from your Start screen from its very own Live tile.

How would you connect? It has Bluetooth and NFC which means that if your smartphone is compatible, you can just tap it against the headset to be instantly connected. If it doesn’t have NFC, just connect via Bluetooth.

The 3.5mm jack will be filled with the noise blocking in-ear headphones (WH-208) that are said to provide a clear and powerful sound. However, the incorporated standard 3.5mm audio connector means that you can attach your favourite headphones, if you wish, and still use the BH-121’s controls.

The BH-121 supports advanced Bluetooth features like HFP/HSP and A2DP/AVRCP profiles. That includes the Nokia Lumia 1520, Lumia 1320, Lumia 1020, Lumia 925, 625, 525, and the Asha 503 and Asha 501 (without the Live tile support) as well as many more. These colourful tiles will start rolling out from December.
