Nokia this NFC (the near field communications) on technology companies with long history, announced unexpectedly with NFC enabled phones, C7 and N9, cannot support mobile wallet and mobile payment functionality. Problem is on the hardware: the mobile phone is not configured for inline elements of security (security of private information such as credit card information stored by a region) or Single Wire Protocol is not supported, mobile operators need to offer NFC functionality by SWP SIM card.
N9 and C7 series does not have the function of mobile payment
Nokia United Kingdom and Ireland service, sales and marketing departments of the Rupert Englander said in an interview with NFCWorld, the company is still exploring the potential of NFC.
“Nokia believes that NFC means more than mobile payment. “He said,” we may go into a shop, then with NFC function that you can easily use their mobile phones to pay the cost of goods. We phones as mobile wallets, it be actually work and facilitate use at least need one to 1.5 years time. People in this area for a variety of attempts, such as Orange and the United Kingdom joint launch of Barclaycard credit card giant Quick Tap services, but it is also restricted, you must be an Orange user, is Barclaycard Customer, and only in certain specific areas for shopping. ”
As there is currently no guarantee NFC mobile phone production standard for transaction security, so Nokia decided not to use the open, chip without security restrictions, the NFC’s focus on “tag and Bluetooth pairing” function.
Does not support NFC mobile payments is possible (but very boring)
Objective terms, Englander was right: NFC is a nascent technology, their actual application, especially applications in mobile payments at least need one to 1.5 year promotional period. Under ViVOtech’s NFC software and systems CEOMick Mullag says, enables all stakeholders including banks, Phonemakers, carriers, website etc to cooperate fully at least require 2-3 time. Of Gartner analysts also believe, adaptation process is very gradually, they predict by 2015, less of 10% users will use NFC mobile payments.
NFC technology is already in a number of high cards in the spread of industry, such as Google (Google Wallet), Visa (Visa ‘ s Digital Wallet), PayPal, T-Mobile, Verizon,AT&T (Isis) and a number of other companies. In other words, in NFC mobile phones before the explosion, will be more based on the launch of NFC technology.
Most these services first United States launch but, Nokia gave up NFC payment function N9 series phones did not prepare landing United States, C7 in United States very little effect. Americans are more important, is the Nokia venture to launch later in the year’s first Windows phone is configured to support mobile payments in the NFC features.
This upcoming release of Windows Mobile phone codenamed “Sea Ray”, according to leaked information, its hardware system appears with the N9 series and has not caused by the second, this may also mean that they also have the same internal structure.
In phone wallet zhiwai certainly has more based on NFC technology of service–for example, Nokia on first launched has support NFC function of “anger of bird” game–select gave up phone wallet service makes Nokia of this two paragraph phone entered has representative with industry “status” of Group (including Blackberry launched of more boring of 9,900 and 9,930 series), and is not “elite” group, as Google of flagship phone Nexus s. Although some unrealistic, but we still hope that Nokia Windows Mobile phone can truly replace our wallets with powerful service, even if it had to spend a long period of time.
