Now that the Lumia 1020 has been released to the world it appears Nokia has started working on some new accessories. The Verge has learned that Nokia is set to release a Bluetooth accessory called “Treasure Tag” to help people find lost physical items. The idea is that users can track the whereabouts of anything with the tag attached via Bluetooth and an app.

The Treasure Tag is a square-shaped gadget that will pair with Lumia Windows Phones with a combination of NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. Just tap the tag to your device and it will automatically be paired. The Treasure Tag will come with a loop strap so you can put it on a pair of keys, or anything else you’d like to keep an eye on.

The tag has sensors built-in that will allow users to track its whereabouts on a map. Alternatively, if you have the tag but can’t find your phone you can press a button to trigger a sound on your phone, assuming it’s in range. The Treasure Tag will roll out sometime after Nokia updates their phones with Bluetooth 4.0 support in the Amber update. Who wants one?

    I am still wondering why more manufacturers are not doing this. People are always looking for these solutions, but so far there are very few “legit” ones. I can only find some from unknown brands. Good job, Nokia. Wondering if they will be compatible with other phones and OS’s.

  • Well, if it’s only NFC and Bluetooth it theoretically could work on any phone. I guess it depends on how much it relies on the app.
