Nokia Lumia 610 NFC hits the market
Yes, we do know that there exists a smartphone which runs on the Windows Phone platform known as the Nokia Lumia 610, but here is a refreshing take on said handset by the Finnish mobile phone manufacturers – by throwing in NFC (Near Field Communication) capability, and hence, the smartphone is now called the Nokia Lumia 610 NFC. How apt, and simple, of course. Leaked earlier this morning, it did not take too long before Nokia decided to let the cat out of the bag officially by introducing an NFC version of the recently launched Nokia Lumia 610.
As for the mobile carriers who will deliver the Nokia Lumia 610 NFC to the masses, Orange is first in line. As for the rest of the carriers, I guess patience is the best policy here. It should arrive in due time, so hold on to your current device if you are itching for an upgrade.
Just to make sure we are all on the same page, what does NFC stand for? It means Near Field Communication, and is a method for two different devices to “talk” to one another, thanks to the wonders of radio communication. There are two ways to approach the matter of devices communicating with one another sans wires via NFC, you can simply touch them together, or holding them in close proximity.
Your new NFC-enabled phone will allow you to transfer items such as photos or contact information from one phone to another by just placing them together. There ought to be a secure element in place in the phone if you want to get down and dirty with payments in stores, and for the more adventurous, how about using your device as a portable travel ticket? Governments everywhere will need to look into upgrading the public infrastructure if NFC technology catches on with the majority of smartphone users.
