NFC (Near Field Communication) has been on hype for a while for its convenience and simplification in use. However, it seems the highly praised technology is too advanced to being adopted for everyday use for the time being. Partly for the inadequacy in smartphones that support NFC and partly because of  few mobile-based services are ready for that.

The awkwardness is on track to be removed with the influx of more and more NFC-ready mobile and service. NOKIA and LBS service Jiepang are leading the trend in a recent joint-force.

NOKIA  launched 3 brand-new NFC built-in smartphones NOKIA 600, NOKIA 700, and NOKIA 701 that use its Symbian Belle system last night. At the same time, Jiepang is also releasing new stickers that support NFC check-in to replace the former ones.
