Nokia launches the new Windows-based smartphone

POSTED BY on Apr 11 under Mobile & Web News

Nokia has been experienced a series of technical problems around the launching of it’s Lumia Windows-based devices, but now the company officially announced its first Near Field Communication Windows phone along with the partnership of Orange Telecom.

The new Lumia 610 is certified with MasterCard and Visa’s mobile apps for contactless payments, that means it will work only when activated and connected with merchants that are linked up with the technology.

There are other NFC solutions rising, for example PayPal’s Here and The Square, so that raises the question whether Near Field Communication technology is going to be as central to mobile business and other mobile transactions as previously thought it would be.

At the Application & Services Congress in Monaco, Nokia is demonstrating how the NFC technology can also be used with Foursquare and other social networks, as well as managing music and in the future for monetary transactions.
