Nokia Wireless Speaker MD-12 Launches in India for Rs 5500

At Microsoft’s BUILD conference last month, Nokia announced MD-12, a wireless portable speaker. Today, at the Lumia 630 launch event in India, the speaker was officially launched there as well. It costs Rs 5,500 ($92), which is rather pricey since its global price is just $55.  

The cute looking speaker reverberates the sound through any surface it’s placed on. If you find the name, “MD-12” a bit off putting, just so you know, Stephen Elop didn’t like it either, but it was too late for any amendments.

The wireless speaker can be connected to Lumia smartphones over Bluetooth. And Much like those phones, MD-12 comes in various colors – yellow, orange, white and green. It can last up to 15 hours on a single charge. The speaker starts shipping by mid-June.

Do you find the price a bit of a deal-breaker?
