Nokia ‘Guru’ an NFC-enabled Bluetooth headset, not a portable music player

The Nokia ‘Guru’ could be nothing more than an upgraded version of Nokia’s existing Bluetooth headset, with NFC capability. 


The Nokia Guru was rumored to be a portable media player similar to Apple’s iPod Shuffle, but leaked schematics from Chinese website Baidu and a look around in an FCC filing reveal that it’s simply an upgraded version of Nokia’s Bluetooth Stereo Headset BH-121, but with the option to connect to devices via NFC.

Furthermore, the BH-121 is also listed on a Czech online retail store, with a price tag of around $55 and an expected launch date of mid-December. The retail listing suggests that an official announcement probably won’t be made, and the Guru will just go up for sale around the world quietly and without any fanfare.
