Nokia's Play 360 speakers might bring the company back up

We know that Nokia's Symbian mobile OS went dud. They even washed their hands off it recently. While everybody waits for Nokia's Windows Phone mobiles, they are bringing out an awesome hi-fi speaker. And mind you, it looks beautiful.

The Nokia Play 360 speakers can connect to any device via Bluetooth or the standard 3.5 mm jack (cable comes with it!). The thing is even NFC-capable. If you have a Nokia phone with near-field communication features like the N9, you can tap it on the speaker to pair and start playing. If you get a call in the middle of the music, you can attend the call normally while the music is paused. If you have two of those, you can pair them up and make them work as left and right channel speakers.

Nokia touts the device as perfect for home, work and travel. And it comes in beautiful colors too, blue, silver and black. These speakers will debut in Q3 of 2011 for about $214. It will also come with a dongle called Nokia Wireless Receiver that brings NFC functionality to your home stereo.

Will you get one? Comments!
