After many leaks we were somewhat surprised not to see Nokia’s Treasure Tag Bluetooth 4.0 accessory at Nokia World last year.
It seems however that the device is slowly making its way to the market, with an internal app showing up in the Windows Phone Store for the accessory.
The app, which provides no clue regarding its function, will expire in 90 days time, which will hopefully also be enough time to actually release the device to market.
Nokia’s Treasure Tag is expected to provide Bluetooth 4.0-based proximity services, allowing users to attach the tag to their keys and then use their phone to find it, or alternatively use it to find your misplaced phone. The app is expected to integrate with Nokia’s Live Sight Augmented Reality app and will work over around 15 metres.
The device has already cleared the FCC so it seems app development is the only thing holding it back at present.
See the entry for the app in the Windows Phone Store here.
Thanks Sven for the tip.
