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?

Any comparison to the Nokia JBL Play Up? Looks like a mini one!

Mestiphal says:

Pretty sure size doesn't matter

benners76 says:

That's what I always say!!! =P

Ordeith says:

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.

westex74 says:

Man, I love my JBL PowerUp! if this one is half as nice....

Jack Larson1 says:

I agree. Good sound quality on the power up, this one looks good

CX1 says:

Most Nokia accessories this year are vaporware. Not holding my breath.

apologetica says:

What is vaporware, and what is else is made from it?

JerqFase says:

Still waiting on the Bluetooth adapter.

kenzibit says:

God please give me a lot of money

jibreezy1982 says:

Please God, me too :)

lancorp says:

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.  :)

pwachleman says:

Looks nice, wish I knew what that currency converted into dollars was...

Look it up? You have the internet...

7 pumpkins, about.

pookyjoralyn says:

epic comment! XD

damo579 says:

39 pounds is about 70 USA

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.

clvrbas says:

Approx $64.85 USD. You can use Bing for the conversation.

lancorp says:

Or soon, you can just ask Cortana.  

Aaron Stark says:

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.

lonbraj says:

However you can't just convert European prices to US Dollars, usually it's much cheaper because the tax is already included in Europe, besides being higher.

Xaphoon148 says:

Ask Cortana...

Why is the white picture blurry?

rodneyej says:

Because it's white..... ;-)

Why do you guys do that? :-/

blackprince says:

It makes us giggle

rodneyej says:


KMF79 says:

Because it's a low resolution photo.

No shit Sherlock, lol.

I meant, why is it blurry, as saying why did they not get a high res photo of it? That's all...

Xaphoon148 says:

They've used an One (two) ?

Where is the phones?? Its just 630 and 930?

rodneyej says:

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..

Racxie says:

Wow, a "serious" comment from you? That's got to be a first❕

stui83 says:

Yeah I was kind of expecting more from this event...

jgbstetson says:

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.

irvin792 says:

Just bought a Sony srs btx500 for only $150 US so I will pass on this little crappy speaker ;) no red anyways wtf@orange

Mngotu says:

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

willied says:

Hope the sound quality is decent.

TechBell says:

Good luck finding one of those in the U.S. 

vkvraju says:

I would say, good luck finding them anywhere (easily).

TechBell says:

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. 

db4williams says:

Day 1 purchase!

hyperthermia says:

Make it available here in the philippines please

2Suave says:

Nice, send me one asap

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.

psychotron says:

Sign me up. Been looking for a new bt speaker.

Verkunder says:

Yes. Yellow. Asap.

lippidp says:

The Play 360's are still the ones to get. You can pair two of them for stereo.

DynaDog says:

⬆⬆⬆ This person is brilliant, as is everyone who agrees with me.

jgbstetson says:

I totally agree.

DynaDog says:

Of course you do, you're brilliant!

hs k says:

Holy fuck, you are a goddamn genius. What's your Iq? 180?

doppleblue says:

Can you similarly do this for PlayUp?

lippidp says:

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!

Fizoto says:

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

DarkKrystof says:

I'll take white, please!

Ill only get one if they make purple..

swizzlerz says:

I want maybe yellow to match my phone but preferably white or black to stay neutral to my next phone.

apologetica says:

I'll purchase, assuming it's not garbage. Love the colors too.

David Bozic1 says:

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!


Dam my.whore of a bank! I get 99¢ so why can't I withdraw $2,000?

lubbalots says:

Its been sold in the US. Its called "the Icon."

lubbalots says:

Too quick on the draw.;-)

Chris_Kez says:

Sure, why not.

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


Comment here lubbalots.

Brian Callen says:

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.

lubbalots says:

Its been sold in the US. Its called "the Icon."

benners76 says:

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.

lubbalots says:

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.

JoRdaNeK says:

Two play 360's for me :)

Kram Devil says:

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!!!

jgbstetson says:

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.

dwshobhit says:

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.

benners76 says:

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!

Da1020Da says:

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

lubbalots says:

New accessories? I've been waiting for a decent case for my 1520 since I bought it.

cesar ruiz1 says:

I know it's stupid even on Nokia's page the only cover for the 1520 is still coming soon.

lubbalots says:

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

cesar ruiz1 says:

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.

QilleRz says:

Cyan, oh cyan :/

Orange and green match the color of my flat perfectly. And my Lumia 930 in orange as well...later this year^^

KMF79 says:

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

Wael Hasno says:

What happened to black?

Tlcoman says:

39 euro is nothin, you have my moneyy

onysi says:

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?

gamato says:

Does it have the new codec ??
And does WP have it ???

boovish says:

Those colors sound atrocious. I want cyan

rav4kar says:

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? 

MrSimmix says:

I want it
