Nokia’s years-long experimentation with the short-range wireless communication technology NFC (near field communication) finally appears ready to pay off. Starting this summer, the Finnish giant will become a leading provider of NFC devices when it begins updating its Symbian phones with NFC-compatible software. Over the next 18 months, Nokia is tipped to ship more than 100 million NFC-enabled smartphones globally. Poken’s new mobile app scans NFC tags for data. It’s shown here on Nokia’s C7 smartphone. The move will pit Nokia against other handset makers that are racing to incorporate NFC so they can offer unique mobile commerce, social networking and marketing services to their users. Google built NFC into its latest flagship phone, the Samsung-made Nexus S, and rolled out a corresponding mobile.
