Nokia Lumia 610 NFC UK Release Date Is Q3 2012

Nokia have officially confirmed the new Lumia 610 NFC model. The announcement comes only a few days after some unofficial details about this terminal have leaked on the web. Nokia Lumia 610 NFC is the first model developed by the Finnish phone maker coming with integrated NFC technology and running on Windows Phone.

The NFC technology will bring a series of interesting features, especially because the smartphone is compatible with VISA and MasterCard payment systems. Thus, Nokia Lumia 610 NFC will allow the customers to register their credit cars and make payments via payWave and PayPass.

The NFC software was mixed with Windows Phone mobile platform. Microsoft kept their promise as they previously announced that they will integrate NFC technology into their mobile operating system, Windows Phone, during 2012.

The owners of this new model will be able to connect their device with certain accessories via NFC. The NFC connections are easier to use, and are way faster than Bluetooth. Thus the user only needs to touch the terminal with the accessory and the connection will be established automatically.

Nokia haven’t unveiled the details regarding the price but it is expected to fit in the low-end segment. Nokia Lumia 610 NFC will debut exclusively at Orange UK in Q3 2012, then it will also be made available on other markets. The Finland-based company was pretty cheap on details, but fortunately the rumor mill have offered lot more info about this terminal.

Nokia Lumia 610 NFC will come with a 3.7-inch display featuring Gorilla Glass protection, 256 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal flash storage, 800 MHz single-core chipset and 5 megapixel camera with support for HD video recording. It was initially reported that Lumia 610 will come with Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh out of the box, but it looks like Nokia have changed their mind as the NFC terminal was pre-loaded with Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango.
