Recently unveiled by Nokia, the Lumia 610 NFC may be cheaper compared to the Lumia 800, Lumia 710, or the high-end Lumia 900, but it does sport NFC (Near Field Communication), which will allow you to do things like paying for goods and services by simply tapping the handset against a phone reader. Nokia has promised that it new handset can make use of Visa and MasterCard mobile payment systems.
The Lumia 610 NFC looks exactly like the ordinary Lumia 610. It will sport the same 3.7-inch display and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. It will also run Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system.
If you’re looking for the budget NFC-enabled Lumia handset, you’re going to have to wait until the third quarter of 2012. This means that the phone will be released in between the months of July and September. The Finnish firm hasn’t officially confirmed whether the handset will be landing in the UK or not, but we’re likely to see the budget Windows Phone by spring.
