Nokia is looking to pump out new hardware next week at its Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. As well as expected tablets and smartphones, the company is also working on accessories and other technologies. Now a tweet published by the rather accurate @evleaks Twitter account suggests Nokia is working on an iPod Shuffle-like, portable music player.
Nokia has been tapping into music, but in a unique way with its special mixes and experience - see Nokia Music for more coverage on the windows Phone app. Setting apart itself from Apple's iTunes, Spotify and Microsoft's Xbox Music, could the company work a portable music player like the iPod Shuffle?
There's not a whole lot of detail, apart from the device is rumoured to sport NFC (near field communication), which is a feature Nokia has implemented on both its smartphones and accessories. Is 'Guru' an accessory or separate hardware, running an OS? How it will be related to Windows Phone (or RT) is far from clear at this time, so just file this under 'interesting'.
We'll keep our eyes open for any leaks that reveal more information on such a device.
Would you like to see a portable music player from Nokia?
