So the other day we reported that Nokia had revealed a new accessory on their website in the form of the Treasure Tag Mini. This is essentially smaller version of their Treasure Tag accessory which seems to be missing NFC connectivity, which has us wondering how will users pair the device with their smartphones?
Well it turns out that it has a rather odd way of pairing with smartphones, thanks to the screenshot above, which shows that users are required to remove and insert the battery of the accessory while keeping it close to a device in order to pair it. It’s a little convoluted but we guess that’s a small price to pay for such a small accessory.
For those unfamiliar with the accessory, it’s basically an accessory you can attach to a variety of items, such as keys, wallets, bags, and so on. It allows the user to locate whatever it is attached to via an app, as long as the Treasure Tag is paired with a smartphone. It can also remind you that you have left certain things behind when you get out of range, like your keys, wallet, and etc.
Apart from the lack of buttons and NFC connectivity, the Treasure Tag Mini has the same functionality as its bigger brother, the Treasure Tag. The device is priced at a very affordable $17, so if you own a Nokia Lumia handset, perhaps this could be a handy accessory worth checking out.
