Nokia Bluetooth BH-221 unveiled with OLED display and FM radio

Nokia Bluetooth BH-221 unveiled with OLED display and FM radio
Along with a bunch of new phones, Nokia sneaked in the new Nokia Bluetooth BH-221 stereo Bluetooth headset with an OLED display and built-in FM radio at MWC 2012. The addition of a single-line OLED screen allows you to know who’s calling or which radio station you’re tuned in to in a glance.

The headset comes with a couple of neat features and the signature colorful and simplistic design of Nokia. You can easily connect and pair the Nokia Bluetooth BH-221 with tap to connect and NFC capabilities.

It features in-ear headphones with bass and treble boost. The built-in FM radio means that you can use the BH-221 on its own to listen to radio - you don’t need the smartphone.

How should one feel about a bluetooth headset with wires?

I dont know about you but my phone refuses to let me listen to the radio without a wired headset. This would be great for me

Oh as far as technological limits go, its required. The radio needs an antenna. For me its not a big deal as I can never get my local stations on my phone. But what I was getting at is I think wireless when I think Bluetooth. This headset throws that preconception out the window.

I see where you're coming from. Right now i have the samsung hm3500. When I use the stereo buds i tuck the rest in my shirt, but looking at the size of that square I'm worried the weight will pull the buds out all the time since clips annoy me

So I can plug my earbuds directly into my phone, or I can plug them into another device that needs to be charged... *scratching head* Hmm that a hard decision. The hole point of Bluetooth is to do away with wires.

Yeah, seems to have the same mediocre headphones of BH-111. Overall seems same as BH-111 but with the OLED display and FM added. What's the price though ?
