Nokia Essence – NFC bluetooth headset that brings 99% noise cancellation in a small package

Well, look what we got here, a beautiful NFC enabled BH-214 successor in a compact package. Well done Nokia !

The Nokia Essence features a stereo bluetooth headset with NFC pairing and i designed similar to the BH-214 except the 3.5 mm jack is not present in this device. The in-ear phones are now in black, woo !

Best part is the Noise cancellation, nearly 99% of the ambient noise is cancelled and provides you a clean music experience with this headset. And NFC pairing will make it very easy for you to connect/disconnect with a touch. I know it s a big usability boost cos i am suffering a connection disconnection inconvenience with my Bh-214 and the N8 even though they are allowed to automatically connect. This device works with any bluetooth 2.0 compatible phone and also the present 5 NFC enabled Nokias that are available in the market ( Nokia 700,701,600,C7 and N9 )

Complete specifications here.

No prices mentioned in Nokia’s page, let’s see what it is when they ship it.

A cool demo of NFC and QML in Nokia C7

Alright, i should clear this first, the Nokia C7 was launched before the Nexus S. Nokia, as usual screwed up their matketing by not telling the world that they have put an NFC chip in the C7, while google showed off in the Nexus S pretty happily . Anyway, in the Mobile world congress, a third party application dev company called Digia had the pleasure of showing us what the NFC chip in C7 can do, and it is pretty slick thanks to the Qt Quick UI of the App. Have a look at the video :

It’s pretty cool right ? Seems very promising for a shopaholic . Enhances the shopping experience very nicely that includes sharing, ratings, touch to get details, getting advice from friends, seeing reviews for that product and what not ? Sounds like a web 2.0 type intelligent app. And aptly named ShopWizer too , you know , Shop wiser 😉 Should come out soon for select markets after Nokia gives C7 the green flag for NFC in a new firmware.
