Nokia C7 has secret NFC chip inside

RegHardware reports that the Nokia C7 has a secret Near Field Communication chip inside. Nokia has been known to randomly slip in easter eggs into their handset – e.g. FM radio receiver in the N800/Accelerometer in the N95.

Nokia will apparently announce soon what they plan to do with this ability. God knows, Nokia phones have always had great features years ahead of predecessors – but they’ve not really known how to take full advantage of it or tell joe public how awesome it is.


Thanks to ZonkOr for the tip to mynokiablog.com/tips.

    Nice. RFID is total crap for secure transactions (witness the plethora of issues with for example public transport cards, read up on the Dutch system for a real horror story that would be funny if it wasn’t for real people’s money paying for it), NFC is supposedly designed exactly for this purpose.

    I hope it catches on, it would be nice, but it should be an open system (not saying it isn’t, I don’t know) so it works with other platforms too. Anyone want to say a bit more about it? 🙂

    Nokia is one of the major players and sponsors for NFC. In Finland, about 10 years ago at my uni we could pay with Nokia mobile phone for drinks in a machine already.
