Nokia has announced an NFC-enabled version of the Lumia 610 smartphone, with operator Orange revealed as the first network to sell it.
Nokia has added an NFC (near-field communication) software stack on top of the Windows Phone OS, which doesn't yet have integrated support for the short-range communication technology.
Orange offers commercial NFC services in France and the UK, but isn't revealing when the Lumia 610 NFC will go on sale or what it will cost.
The standard version of the Lumia 610 will cost ?189 (?156) without subsidies, and will begin shipping during the second quarter.
Payment is the NFC application that is getting the most attention, but other ways of using he technology are expected to drive usage in the beginning.
The availability of more phones will help drive NFC applications, first non-payment and simple apps including marketing, advertising, coupons, then payment, Sandy Shen, research director at Gartner, said earlier this year.
The Lumia 610 NFC can pair with accessories and read tags with a single tap. The latter allows users to check in on Foursquare, follow someone on Twitter, like someone on Facebook or tap a tag to start a download. Users will also be able to create their own tap with the Nokia Tag Writer app.
