The Nokia MD12 speaker

At the Nokia Lumia event in San Francisco Wednesday, Nokia unveiled the Nokia MD12, a Bluetooth speaker accessory for Lumia devices.

The MD12 speaker "acoustically connects" with your phone to act as a speakerphone, and it can also play music for up to 15 hours. It'll cost $55 when it goes on sale, but no word yet on it's official release date.

The speaker is round with a grill on top, and has a single large button on the front. The model that Nokia showed off at its press event sported the same bright orange color that's available for the Lumia 930, 630, and 635 smartphones. No word yet if you can get it in other colors to match your Lumia device.
