Nokia Guru accessory pops up, flaunting a play button and NFC

Nokia is known for cool accessories, and the new batch of phones and tablets about to be unveiled tomorrow from the Finns is likely to be no exception. A new gizmo called Nokia Guru has appeared, and it has every bearing of a music-related accessory.

The squarish cyan Guru in the picture has a volume rocker and a play button, as well as a pair of in-ear headphones matching its color. There is a microUSB port in there as well, suggesting the device might carry its own battery and/or storage. There is an NFC tag, and some are suggesting it is Bluetooth equipped, too, so what exactly is the goal here, remains to be seen. 

Is it a player and a Bluetooth headset in one to help keep the huge Lumia 1520 in your pocket more often? And if so, is it true that Nokia's first phablet will have a cyan version indeed? We've also heard that the new Lumia 525 about to be shown tomorrow will be a music-centric phone, so the Guru could be meant for it. All is likely to be revealed tomorrow, when Nokia World is taking place, so we'll keep you posted.

If it doesn't have a good DAC and a decent amplifier then it will be considered bad.

I currently use a Fiio X3 for portable music because the quality of phones is a joke. It has a Wolfson WM8740 and an AD8397 amplifer + 3000MAH battery. Also supports 64GB micro sds and almost every type of music file.

I am addicted to Cowons. Their personalized Jet Effects (EQ settings) are out of the world. That paired with Klipsch image S4 ear buds \m/

No NFC though. But still, well played.
Hats off to you.

I think Nokia had better-looking wearable bluetooth devices than this.
