Nokia RFID Phone Makes Payments For You

The Nokia 6131 NFC is just another sign of a growing trend for use of RFID devices. The Nokia has Near Field Communication capability where it transmits data (payments) wirelessly up to 4 centimeters away. Like Bluetooth but on a microscopic scale.

So the RFID will recognize bar codes off products in stores, sweep past a movie poster to get the trailer via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi download (RFID swipe just starts the process). Nokia teamed with Cingular and is performing beta testing in New York and Atlanta. The Nokia 6131 comes equipped with MicroSD slot, MP3 player, FM radio and 1.3mp camera. Not bad.
