The Nokia Lumia 610 NFC is the Finnish phone maker’s first Windows Phone device with NFC technology. NFC hardware and software has been grafted on to the device as the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system doesn’t support the technology as shipped.
The handset will first be available from Orange in Europe, from June 2012 or soon afterwards. The phone, which includes NFC technology from Inside Secure, is expected to retail at around €200.
The Lumia 610 NFC was announced on 11 April 2012 at the Wima NFC industry tradeshow in Monaco.
