Compatibility with NFC technology is one of the missing features of the platform Windows Phone, but this will soon change. One of the first companies that are willing to show such a product is Nokia. The company said it expected its premiere model Lumia 610NFC chip will have a wireless short-range, which will allow work with NFC tags or connection accessories with NFC (as Nokia Essence and Play 360, which we reported recently).
Moreover, the phone will be compatible with MasterCard Paypass system for conducting contactless payments at the touch of your phone to the terminal.
So far the video presenting device is hidden (and found another copy of the video), suggesting that its release has become random. It is not yet clear whether NFC is included in the original Lumia 610, or phone will get another version of the chip.
According to TechCrunch premiere of the phone will be today at 15 CET when Nokia will announce that the device will be available from Orange. The presentation coincides with the beginning of the WIMA NFC Congress 2012, held in Monaco.
Information about Lumia 610 with NFC is already official. The phone is a new version of Lumia 610 with NFC chip and will be offered first by the operator Orange in various European markets where the company operates. Except for the connection of accessories and work with NFC tags, Lumia 610 with NFC will be used for mobile payments and will be compatible with systems MasterCard PayPass and Visa payWave. Sales of the device will begin early in the third quarter.
