Nokia BH-121 Bluetooth Headphones Have NFC and More

Nokia has rolled out a new seat of Bluetooth headphones that are different from the offerings on the market. Typically, when you get Bluetooth headphones, you are getting a one piece device that you can’t swap headsets on. Nokia has unveiled the BH-121 Bluetooth headset and the guts are in a small square box.

That little box measures 39 x 39 x 12mm and has a standard 3.5mm output. The BH-121 does come with a Nokia set of ear buds. However, if you have a favorite pair of headphones or ear buds, you can use anything with a 3.5mm input.

The BH-121 features an integrated clip for attaching it to your clothing. It also has NFC technology to make it easier to pair with your device. That is assuming your smartphone supports NFC. The BH-121 will pair to non-NFC devices as well. The headphones come in Nokia colors like cyan, red, yellow, and black.

The headphones have an LED indicator for battery life. They also have integrated controls on the square box for volume and track. You can also answer or end calls from the headset. The BH-121 will sell for €39 and launch this month.

It's worth reflecting on this passage in Deepa Bhandaru's post about Seattle's leading socialist Kshama Sawant and the current CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella:Nadella strikes the corporate world as a kind of Gandhi figure. Tall and trim with buzzed hair and dark-rimmed glasses, he exudes a corporate brand of asceticism. His lean runner’s body harbors no extra fat. His spee ...

The Lumia 530. Nokia If analytics companies are to be believed, the lowly Lumia 520 and its variants have been the most popular Windows Phone handsets ever. Today, Microsoft officially announced that phone's successor, the Lumia 530.

Are we witnessing Windows Phone’s last stand?

Source: BGR

Much has been written about Microsoft’s unsettling plan to cut loose some 18,000 of its employees by the end of 2014. You could argue that it’s a necessary evil, or you could argue that it’s a short-sighted misstep. From what I’ve read, this is about Microsoft repositioning itself for the current reality it finds itself a part of. In many ways, Ballmer never took the steps to shape the company into a viable behemoth. Just as he laughed off the iPhone in 2007, he never re ...
