NFC Coming to BlackBerry Smartphones

Posted by at 12:12 pm on February 16, 2011

BlackBerry maker RIM has said that “many” of its future devices coming this year will have NFC (Near Field Communications)  capability.

The comments made by Jim Balsillie, the company’s co-CEO, at his keynote speech at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will be good news for those looking to pay for things with their mobile phones.

NFC has seen a massive boost in popularity in the last couple of months, after Google announced it would be adding NFC support in Android 2.3 and the Nexus S.

Sony Ericsson, HTC and LG have yet to release NFC-ready handsets promising the technology later in the year.

So far NFC can be found in Nokia and Samsung smartphones.
