Nokia N9 is the latest device out of Nokia’s closets and it is receiving mixed reactions. Check this post for some positive criticism (not some random Nokia-bashing) and if you have seen any of the demo videos or anything remotely connected to the launch of the Nokia N9, you were as impressed as anyone else with a high-end smartphone in his hand.
Nokia has a program in place to give out developer devices for all those who are willing to support this great phone by Nokia. While this phone comes with some assured turn-offs, one of the future-techs in this phone that impressed me is what Nokia has done with NFC.
As you can see clearly in this page from WikiPedia, NFC provides sharing, pairing and transaction featues. Now, Google and the Apple have taken the payment aspect of NFC so seriously, they probably overlooked a simple fact. There are other things to be done with NFC! Other easier things for example pairing. Spot on Nokia.
Bluetooth pairing with NFC in Nokia
Nokia N9 might not be a killer phone but it has those tiny details that sets it ahead of the rat race. NFC is one of those features. With NFC, Nokia has dared to do what others thought was too meaningless to consider. Nokia has brought NFC enabled bluetooth speakers and headphones that can pair with the Nokia N9. The demo itself is cool enough and you might have seen it already but here it is again for those not so lucky.
The speaker Nokia is advocating for this feature is the Nokia Play 360 and the price will play a cruel trick on you but you can always have a look at it here.
The Nokia Play 360 is priced at USD 213.
Advertisements are sugar coated. Here it how it fares in the real world.
And no, it does not stop at that. The NFC can be used for pairing two Nokia N9 NFC devices with bluetooth as well.
This is impressive. Though, this is not.
