Withings Home Plus, announced back in January at CES2017, is the newest casualty of Nokia-Apple patent war. Unfortunately, this beautifully designed HD camera that could be integrated with Apple Home Kit and serve as a home and baby monitoring system, won’t see the light of the day. Since the original plan was probably to target Apple’s trusting customers, Nokia decided not to push this product anymore. Home Plus was priced at 199 USD and should have been made available during Q1. Now it is also beaten to market by a similar product made by D-Link.
Currently Nokia can afford losing a bit of Withings’ market share, since anyway, Nokia is re-branding Withings’ full lineup into Nokia. Hope we’ll see a similar product with Nokia logo, and then it will reach even more potential customers than it would via the Apple Store.
