Earlier this year, Nokia announced the Treasure Tag accessory which is basically a device you can clip onto your bag, attach to your keys, and so on. It pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth or NFC and basically once you’re out of range, it will alert your phone and remind you that you forgot to take your bag or keys with you. It can also be used to help locate missing objects, like misplaced keys, and so on.
The accessory itself isn’t that big or bulky, but it seems that Nokia has decided that a Treasure Tag Mini is called for. The accessory has been spotted on Nokia’s website, although there was no announcement accompanying its listing. Now calling it a “mini” might not be the most accurate description. The device still measures 30x30x10mm, although its thickness and weight have been shaved down.
The device, which used to measure 10mm, is now nearly half and measures 5.8mm thin. It has also dropped in weight where its original weight of 13g is now at 6.2g, making it a thinner and lighter device than before. However Nokia did “sacrifice” certain features, such as NFC connectivity, at least according to the spec sheet which does not seem to list NFC support.
For those who don’t have NFC-enabled devices we guess this isn’t a big deal, and for those who do, there’s still the option of pairing it with Bluetooth. No word on pricing or availability yet, but with the original Treasure Tag priced at $29.99, we expect that the Treasure Tag Mini will be priced around the same as well.
