Nokia launches Imagewear products
Just after the news of the Nokia 7600 came out, Nokia announced Imagewear. Great wearable imaging products, but where's Bluetooth?

The new Nokia Imagewear series combining style, design and wearability with easy to use technology. The first products in the series are the Nokia Medallion I & II (images below) and the Nokia Kaleidoscope I (image right). These products will be available in Europe, US and selected markets in Asia Pacific with shipments planned to begin during the first quarter of 2004.

"These new intelligent wearables, the Nokia Medallions and the Nokia Kaleidoscope I, have been designed for people who want to stand out from the crowd with a wearable digital "locket" or small pocketable "viewer" that can be personalized," said Mr. Frank Nuovo, Chief Designer & Vice President, Nokia Design. "Technological innovations are now making these small, intelligent, wearable accessories possible. Nokia intends to lead and shape this exciting new mobile lifestyle as it emerges over the next few years."

The Nokia Medallions are designed for carrying, wearing and displaying images reflecting your personal style or emotion. The images are transferred wirelessly from a compatible mobile phone via infrared, or from a computer. You can take a snap shot and upload it in an instant via infrared to the wearable display. Wear either around your neck or use the wrist strap with the Nokia Medallion II and wear it as a bracelet.

The Nokia Medallion I stores up to eight still images. The color image and the sleek steel frame are housed in a stylish choker. The image conceals a backlit timepiece revealed at the touch of a button. When the timepiece is hidden, the Medallion I is backlit with a soft light that slowly fades in and out. The Nokia Medallion II is a sibling product to the Nokia Medallion I, the difference lies in the industrial design, housed in classic steel, which provides a subtle, minimalist backdrop for desired images.

With the small Nokia Kaleidoscope I, you can upload digital images and easily store and carry them with you. A full color virtual display, together with infrared transmission and discrete good looks, makes the Nokia Kaleidoscope I an ideal pocketable "viewer" for sharing selected digital images with friends and family. The Nokia Kaleidoscope I uploads images via infrared or from a compatible memory card (MMC).
