Nokia Luna unveiled, an NFC Bluetooth headset from another planet

Nokia Luna unveiled, an NFC Bluetooth headset from another planet
The Nokia Luna was unveiled today along with the new very affordable Symbian Belle-powered Nokia 603, but unlike the 603 we weren’t exactly sure what the Luna is the first time we saw it. And that’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite - the Luna is a beautiful triangular NFC-enabled Bluetooth headset, but it looks like alien technology in its miniature round charging cradle. It could be just us, but in the press shots it almost felt like a sort of an alien robot looking at us.

The design is the most striking feature of the Nokia Luna - it comes in a range of colors including the classic black and white, but also fuchsia (yes, that’s a color), green, yellow and blue. But it’s not just the looks - the headset is also very lightweight at just 0.18 ounces (5g). 

Save for the neat addition of NFC support, the rest is pretty standard protocols support - Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Handsfree profile 1.5 and Headset Profile 1.1 advanced multipoint.

Battery life stands at the impressive 8 hours or 60 days in standby. Finally, the Nokia Luna headset is coming soon - in Q4 - but with a little catch in the form of a $95 (69 euro) price tag. But that’s what you need to pay for alien technology, now the question is would you?

It's a Bluetooth headset after all so it works with all BT-enabled phones. NFC is there to make pairing easier.

Great device. They really thought out of the box on this BT device. Different colors, pop up device from the hand held sphere, 8 hrs of TT and even a tap to pair the phone up. Very cool. As the tag line goes.....Daringly Different, Surprisingly Simple.
