Nokia 6131 NFC Edition

January 8, 2007 in Nokia Phone News

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nokia announced a whole slew of new products – phones, headsets, etc.

First up was the Nokia 6131 NFC Edition.

NFC stands for near field communication, and is the technology that allows you to use your cell phone to pay for sodas at a vending machine, among other things. It’s taken Rip Van Winkle-long ages for the technology that’s pretty common in Japan and Korea to actually show up anywhere else in the world. It’s supposed to revolutionize the way we pay for soda, and maybe even candy bars. But don’t expect to see it anytime soon.

The NFC is what makes the phone, sadly. Beyond that, you’ve got a 1.3 megapixel camera, expandable microSD memory, Bluetooth, FM radio. Pretty much the same as the regular 6131 phone (or is that 6126?).

Expect the 6131 NFC Edition in early 2007. It’ll retail for about $340 USD, and will be more or less useless for quite some time.

I’d agree with you that NFC is what makes this phone.

It does bring some interesting prospects for developers, because they now finally can get started with JSR 257:
