This is not Nokia's first NFC enabled device, but it is Nokia's first NFC enabled device running on the Windows Phone platform. Along with the Nokia 603, 701, N9, the Lumia 610 NFC is the 8th NFC smartphone Nokia has introduced in the past two years.
Nokia also has NFC accessories like the Nokia Play 360 Speakers, along with other on-ear headsets.
