NFC is coming to Austria

At a press conference today mobilkom’s Hannes Ametsreiter presented NFC Services in cooperation with Nokia, NXP and ÖBB. From today mobilkom will also sell Nokia 6131 NFC Handsets out in their shops. All the presented uscases rely on the reader/writer functionally of the mobile phone. Services making use of the secure element are not yet implemented. The secure element is closed in order not to allow 3rd partys to install applications on the smart card chip (chain-of-trust must be asured). After two years of intensive research this is a great success for our team. I’m looking forward to see people trying the new services. But this is just the beginning of new era of services and there are more applications to come.
