Nokia is hardly on the cutting edge of handsets.  Heck, the company has fallen into obscurity and almost shambles, largely because they refused to adopt Android.  An over simplification?  Absolutely.  However, the company is still driving forward with new products despite their shortcomings and their latest, the Nokia Luna Bluetooth headset ain’t looking too shabby.

Much like the Jabra Stone, the Luna includes a a base for charging and storing your headset.  Removing it from the base automatically powers on the Bluetooth and thus saves on battery life when it’s not in use.  On the converse, place it back in the base and the Bluetooth will power down. But that’s not the only connectivity punch this diminutive sized headset has to offer.  Nokia has stuffed it with an RFID chip, allowing you to pair it with a smartphone bearing the same tech simply by physically tapping the two together. Brilliant.

The ear piece itself weighs 5g, while the charging base is 18.3g, so it should be very pocket friendly.  It supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and multipoint connections, enabling you to pair it with two devices simultaneously.   In terms of battery life expect 8 hours of talk time and 60 days of standby.

The Nokia Luna, which comes in black, white, fuchsia, green, yellow and blue will arrive sometime probably in the next 30 days and will cost about $95.  No word if we’ll see it State Side, though.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
