Nokia’s Bluetooth accessory ‘Treasure Tag’ render gets leaked

Nokia is expected to unveil quite a few new devices next month in UAE for what may be their final Nokia World. Whether it is the Lumia 1520 or their tablet, the rumored Lumia 2520, Nokia is sure to have a great show.

One of those items due for release will be the Bluetooth charm called ‘Treasure Tag’. The item will reportedly work with Bluetooth 4.0 LE devices and allow users to track things like keys, bags or whatever it is attached too. NFC will be on board too for quick and easy pairing. As the Verge reported earlier this summer, the device will have a button on it to ID phones that it is attached to and its battery should last 6 months while always being on.

As you can see above, a colored in render has made its way onto the internet via @Evleaks. The render matches the earlier sketches revealed this summer and give a better idea of what the item will look like.

Current Windows Phone 8 Lumias are expected to get Bluetooth 4.0 LE support through the GDR3 / Bittersweet shimmer update due later this year.

Finally, Nokia's Treasure Tag, also known as WS-2, made its way through the FCC, clearing the way for commercial release. Nokia will most likely unveil this accessory and the associated software with it at Abu Dhabi later in October. Windows Phone Central will of course be on hand to cover Nokia World in the UAE on October 22nd, so stay tuned.

Nokia’s Bluetooth accessory ‘Treasure Tag’ render gets leaked


This is cool! Of course, as an AT&T subscriber, I won't get GDR3 for 6 months. I suppose I'll look silly with a treasure tag hanging from my glasses.

GDR2 is "supposed" to come to ATT by the end of this month. Well 4 days to go. speaking about my 920

Found my new keyholder right here. I think that's 1:1 scale beside the 920 (nice choice of phone =])

That would be useful but weird looking for my glasses. I keep misplacing them, and without them on my nose it's hard to find them ;-)

I wonder what the range is. It would be awesome to leave in a parked car in a large parking lot.

what beyond lost key's/bags is this product useful for? The handful of times i lose keys or indeed bags, it doesn't usually take more than a few minutes to find them again. Can someone enlighten me to the broader uses? are items pinpointed on a map? seems like that would be of limited use in a domestic setting.

Whats the range of these things?
Most Bluetooth stuff I've used only has several feet line of site to work.
I just don't see how this would have much practical use at all

Actually yes. I wonder if this could be used to somehow push a notification to you if you child/tag goes out of range? This would be awesome when in very busy/public places trying to keep track of several kids.

I cant wait for this to release, however I would realy love to see a loose dongle instead of the stiff molded hoop.
