Hands-on with the Nokia MD-12 wireless speaker

Nokia MD-12

While not as crazy as new phones, Nokia did announce a new wireless Bluetooth speaker. It’s cute, it’s small, it’s the Nokia MD-12. We weren’t expecting much from the speaker, but walked away pretty impressive by what it can do. Check our hands-on with the MD-12 below.

The MD-12 connects to your phone wirelessly (or via a 3.5mm jack). You can connect your phone manually by pressing the Bluetooth connect button or you can just tap and pair with the NFC-Bluetooth combo.

While small, the MD-12 does pack a punch. It has a built-in vibrating actuator located on the base. It’ll create heavy bass by being placed on heavy surfaces. Sound quality was pretty good from what we could tell, but we were in a crowded environment.

The MD-12 offers 15 hours of music playback. You can get it in yellow, green, orange or white. Look for it in the coming weeks for €39.

Bluetooth, can I make calls?

Ken Heslip says:

Wireless charging would be nicer.

Clavitox says:

What do you think this is, jbl play to? ;)

pexbirdxd says:

Toib has updated today at version

joanzen says:

A bit off topic, but Toib, while oddly named, is awesome!

Soypan says:

Did they say when I can buy one in the US?

tstray says:

Can two of these be paired for stereo sound as the previous generation of wireless speakers were?

Ordeith says:

That would be the generation previous to the previous generation. The PlayUp could not be paired.

instantcoffe says:

Yeah I walk away pretty impressive too.

meg2u says:

Cute but my $39.00 Jam Bluetooth speaker works awesome!

DalekSnare says:

Will the new Lumias support aptX so Bluetooth speakers can be used for music with any degree of sound quality?

Id also like to know this

MastaChief says:

Would be nice if you can pair multiple at the same time like the new beats pill xl

RogerWh says:

I am definitely getting 2 of them!

JoRdaNeK says:

Compared to the stereo sound i get from my 2 play 360s?

Kooosh says:

This thing will be on sale for $30 two months after it drops. You know it, I know it, Nokia knows it. $59 is laughable given what's already out there for a lot less.

benners76 says:

It feels faster.

hawaiilumia says:

What about activating equalizer via Bluetooth????

Would love to play some cat sounds and make my cat look for it

strikeswp says:

Wish you would have had a chance to record it's audio a little bit. This is the thing I would like to try before I buy, especially for $60. Looks cool though.

WPJanssen says:

Stereo if you have 2 ?! ;-)

onysi says:

anyone else know if this will come with a pouch so i can hang it on the side of my backpack?

mrTablet says:

Is it posible to connet MD-12 to PC? #Bluetooth
