nokia gear mwcNokia has certainly made waves at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, having unveiled the Nokia 808 PureView which carries a whopping 41-megapixel shooter, in addition to new Nokia Lumia handsets to enhance their Windows Phone portfolio, but the Finnish smartphone manufacturer has also unveiled a couple of new accessories that are meant to complement your smartphone user experience. What you see above is the Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-221, where this bright and adaptable piece of kit will target active music lovers, offering DSP, bass and treble adjustment wherever you are. Not only that, it comes with a built-in FM radio in addition to an OLED display that lets you know just what station is being played back at the moment. At least using this FM radio would mean not having to drain your phone’s battery, as it operates independently. A two-hour charge ought to allow the BH-221 to run for 7 hours of non-stop talking, or 150 hours in standby.

As for the Nokia DC-16 that looks like some sort of hybrid AA battery, this is actually a portable USB charger that will not only offer emergency power for your smartphone, but for other compatible devices as well, thanks to power reserves in its 2,200mAh battery. It will juice up your device via USB, and is said to be able to retain 75% of its charge even after 3 months. Neat!
