The Nokia Lumia 610 NFC has been announced as the first Windows Phone handset to come packing NFC technology.
Hands on: Nokia Lumia 610 review
For those of you who are a bit slow on the uptake, the new handset is a reboot of the Nokia Lumia 610 we saw launched at MWC 2012, which was touted as the most affordable Windows Phone mobile yet.
More NFC phones to come
The Nokia Lumia 610 NFC is just the start though, as Nokia's head of product marketing Ilari Nurmi revealed: "We're bringing NFC right across our portfolio, and together with our ever-growing range of NFC accessories we're making it easy for people to connect via a single tap."
So brace yourself for an onslaught of Nokia Lumia devices packing NFC making an appearance this year, as the mobile world moves towards contactless technology.
Nokia has confirmed that the Lumia 610 NFC UK release date will be early in the third quarter of 2012, so expect it to land in stores around July.
In the UK, the Nokia Lumia 610 NFC will initially only be available with Orange.
