Nokia announces MD-12 Bluetooth speaker in a variety of awesome colors

The Nokia MD-12 is a brand new wireless speaker system just announced at the #moreLumia event, part of the ongoing Build 2014 conference. Weighing roughly as much as an apple — har! — Nokia calls the MD-12 a "funky" new portable Bluetooth mini-speaker. It's got a built-in vibrating actuator for heavy base, and offers 15-hours of battery life so you can power your party, and your after party, and your after after party with ease.

The MD-12 also offers speaker-phone functionality, as you'd expect, and can be paired with but a single tap of your NFC equipped Windows Phone.

Speaking of which, the MD-12 comes in yellow, green, orange, and white, just like the brand new 2014 Windows Phones!

Price is an astoundingly good €39, but we haven't seen anything on availability yet. So, in the meantime, check out the new Nokia MD-12 and let me know — are you getting one, and if so, what color?

Nokia announces MD-12 Bluetooth speaker in a variety of awesome colors


The playup is amazingly good for its size. This doesn't look like there is enough volume for even ported bass, but we'll see when the reviews come in.

You react like the market isn't already FLOODED by bluetooth party speakers.

If you don't already have one, you probably don't really need one.  

On the other hand, I do hope a lot of money comes your way.  :)

It's Euros, not Pounds, so it's about $53. Assuming you just convert it across and don't factor in that most prices in the EU will have VAT tacked on.

Or just hold down the Windows key and say "39 pounds to US dollars" and it will pop up with your answer. In the current version of WP.

The 1520, and Icon are current devices. They are modern high end phones... Higher specs aren't extremely necessary right now.. Expect a few new devices starting this summer... I guess the Lumia Cyan update will kick off new devices this summer.
I actually believe that the Icon/1520 have better hardware specs, and features, than the GS5, HTC M8, and new Z2..

Hopefully it's not another Nokia accessory that's impossible to find or takes months to hit shelves. I asked Nokia US where I could find the BH-121. They said they had no info on that headset. Sweet.

My choice is the yellow!! To match my Lumia 1020. And then maybe get the orange and green as presents for friends??

Good point. I have no idea why Nokia accessories are so difficult to find/buy? I'm tired of scouring ebay and Amazon listings for things as basic as a car dock or an extra power adaptor. 

Ah yes, another one of Nokia's exclusive rare accessories. With this product line, they'll be producing five of each color. If lucky, you might be able to find one on ebay in a year or so.

I don't think so. I can vouch for the Play 360's. You hold them together and hold down the power buttons for a couple of seconds. They communicate with each other and then announce which is the left channel and which is the right channel. Then you NFC tap your phone to either speaker and then start rocking. The sound is surprisingly good for their sizes. I got a pair of these in December so they're probably still available, but discontinued I think. Oh, and the battery life is unbelievable!

I'm in the market for one of these anyway. SOLD! It was that, or be branded a douche for getting a Beats speaker.

Only black will be available in America because Americans like boring colors! The other colors will be distributed in other parts of the world just like the 2520. Where's white and cyan in the 2520? Probably Elop's kids are using them after the Abu Dahbi conference!

So out off topic Lumia 930 not coming to US wtf???? I was reading in some other side.. Can anyone confirmed if that is true not coming to usa

930 not coming to US because the 930 is just the international version of the 929/Icon which is a Verizon exclusive in the US. BTW, the icon is a great phone.

Look spec for spec at Icon vs 930... They're exactly the same. Euro version got all the cool colors b/c Verizon is too conservative for anything other than white/black. =/ #Iwantthegreenone.

I feel ya. I took the Nokia survey on my 1520 and they asked about color choices. I opted for orange. Low and behold it showed up the on 930. Hopefully future phones will have both orange and green, NO gloss finish, and on all carriers.

Rene Ritchie is doing a Nokia article?  You guys are sure are mixing it up!  Katy Perry on the picture.  Good Choice Nokia, good choice!!!

I wouldn't be surprised to see the MN staff cross platform lines when there's a big event like this. Maybe the WPC staff will write an article or two for the next apple event.

I'll definitely not going to buy it. Cause Lumia 520 don't have audio equalizer. So can't enjoy the music according to my taste..,. If Windows Phone 8.1 will have this then I will buy this.

When I saw this early today on the Nokia website, I thought it was some kind of photo-mishap... Like they scrunched down the Play-Up or something. Glad I was wrong. Way to go Nokia... Continue making cool, high-quality, well-designed accessories!

Nokia great in making new accessories but its really painful waiting for it to reach the store.
TQ Nokia.

Jealous iPhone, Samsung Galaxies, HTC, always get those nice cases. Nokia needs to step up on the case part too!

There's alot of nice cases for other Lumia phones, the Lumia 1520 and 2520 are being completely ignored. They haven't even fixed the awful low light video recording on the 1520.

Looks cool. Though I still want the cyan blue JBL stereo with wireless charging. Nokia MD-100W.

i almost bought beats pill for 200.  for 70 bucks, im sold.  the battery life sold me to it.  is that 15 hrs qith bluetooth or auxilary?

I have a Nokia 360 speaker and it has a serious design flaw and Nokia didn't want to listen to me when I called them...but I just fixed it by a sticky tape on the bluetooth key...hope you guys get what I mean?
