NFC - E6 - How to?

Does E6 have NFC capabilities? If Yes how to use it to pair and transfer data with other NFC phones? I read somewhere that C7 has got its NFC enabled by the Anna update. My friend has one and I am looking forward to trying this out. -BBN.

It misses a hardware component which the C7 had!

Then this will be my biggest OOPS moment after buying E6. How sad, too bad.

Can the NFC chip be installed in the E6 or E7?

Re: NFC - E6 - How to?

I'm afraid not, not only is it part of the main circuit board but the firmware wouldn't allow the capability as it's not an NFC enabled device.

Re: NFC - E6 - How to?

Why don't you (=Nokia) just develop a Micro SDHC card with additional NFC functionality? Just thinking ...

Re: NFC - E6 - How to?

it would ned to be an extra physical addon and would make the micro sim too large. And also as mentioned previously the phones firmware would not read this as an NFC enabled device.

There are in the market NFC USB. http://www.identivenfc.com/nfc-readers.htm

If people at Nokia gives the functionality that USB drives, mouses and keyboards have, any USB OTG device could use a NFC reader.

Re: NFC - E6 - How to?

Correct, however these are built with NFC in mind. I'm not sure how a seperate addon to a phone would then link into the software of the phone. I think the way this new technology evolves and becomes more prominent that eventually all phones will all have it built into them... in the same way that bluetooth, wifi, GPS etc were/are gradually introduced.
