Last year we saw a new Nokia accessory called the "Treasure Tag" appear in a couple of leaks. The Treasure Tag was described as being a small device that could wirelessly pair with a Nokia Windows Phone and then be physically attached to an important belonging, such as a set of keys or a purse. Users would then install a Treasure Tag app on their phone that would alert them when they leave their tagged object behind and also show the location of the object on a map.
We haven't heard much of anything about Nokia's Treasure Tag since the last leak that surfaced in October 2013, but that's changing today. The official Treasure Tag app has silently appeared in the Windows Phone Store, complete with a description of the accessory's features and several screenshots of the app itself. Users can even install the app if they've got a Nokia Lumia handset running the newest Lumia Black update, though obviously the app won't do much without the Treasure Tag itself.
Nokia's Treasure Tag looks like a nifty little accessory to help the more forgetful among us to keep track of important objects like a set of keys. Unfortunately, there's no word yet on exactly when Nokia will actually launch its Treasure Tag or how much the accessory will cost when it does, and the fact that the Treasure Tag has been leaking since last July with no official word from Nokia makes this whole situation even muddier. Nokia is holding a press event at Mobile World Congress later this month, and with the appearance of this official Treasure Tag app, there's a chance that MWC could bring the long-awaited official debut of this little tag.
