Nokia today took the wraps off of its new BH-121 Bluetooth stereo headset, a squarish music player that we first got wind of back in October when it leaked under the codename "Guru." The BH-121 pairs with a user's smartphone either over Bluetooth or NFC and can handle phone calls as well as play back music.
The dimensions for this little Bluetooth square are 39 x 39 x 12mm, and the BH-121 features a clip on its backside so that it can be attached to clothing. The front of the unit features a Play button that also handles calls, and all around its sides are controls for Bluetooth, volume and track control as well as USB and 3.5mm headphone ports. An LED displays the BH-121's battery level, but Windows Phone users can also check battery life, connectivity and even location using a dedicated Live Tile. Support for Bluetooth features like HVS/HSP and A2DP/AVRCP profiles are included with the BH-121 as well.
Nokia says that the BH-121 will go on sale in December with suggested retail price of €39 ($53 USD). As with most Nokia hardware, the device will be available in a variety of colors that includes cyan, red, yellow and black. Each BH-121 also comes with its own pair of noise-blocking in-ear headphones that feature the model number WH-208.
The BH-121 looks like a neat little Bluetooth accessory that's meant to make it easier for a user to control their music and handle calls without having to constantly pull out their handset. The ability to check on its battery life and location through a dedicated Live Tile is a nice touch for Windows Phone users, but even non-Windows Phoners can still use the BH-121 and get quite a bit out of it. What do you think of the Nokia BH-121? Is it something that you think you'd use on a regular basis?
