Treasure Tag mini appears on Nokia's website
You might recall Nokia's Treasure Tags. Powered by Bluetooth LE, you clip the tag to a valuable item that you wouldn't want to leave the house without. Examples would be your car keys, or your purse. If you start to leave the house without the tagged items, an alarm goes off on your Nokia Lumia phone. If the alarm isn't enough to help you find the item, a HERE map will lead you to it. Four tags can be paired to one Lumia phone, and Nokia previously said that third party apps would allow the tags to work on iOS and Android handsets.

While the original Treasure Tags measured 30 mm x 30mm x 10mm and weighed 13g, the Finnish based tech firm has introduced the Treasure Tag mini. Mini might be a misnomer for the device, since each tag is 30mm x 30mm, the same size as the original. But at 6.2g, the weight is less than half that of the "full-sized" tag. And the 5.8mm thickness of the Treasure Tag mini is nearly half that of the original unit. The tags have a range of 131 feet and the battery allows for 120 days of standby time.

Those in the states can purchase the original Treasure Tags from Verizon, priced at $29.99 for each one. Pricing and availability of the Treasure Tag mini (WS-10) is unknown at this point.

Thanks for the tip!
