The manufacturer RIM has confirmed thatits two smartphones BlackBerry Curve 9360 and Bold 9900 would beincluded in the project Cityzi before the end of the year. Visacertification is also under way.
Slowly (very slowly) but surely, NFC-related services are takingshape here. Remember, this is the contactless technology that enablesa mobile terminal to interact with the dedicated in bringing them.
For years that tests of all kinds are held all over France.Between car parks, payment solutions, tags interactive billboards,everything seems to be almost past. But there is still no NFC servicenationwide. Public transport, particularly the Navigo Pass, wereapproached to be the first major service to open the NFC. The NavigoPass are after all using this technology.
We naively saidthat it was common ground found between all the different actors(warring?) To finally launch an application NFC nationally.Unfortunately, the discussions still lying in length between theStif, the Regional Council and operators.
To explain theseendless procrastination, some highlight the absence of mobile NFC.Clearly, the service would be slow to be deployed because even ifthey were, nobody would use them. The builders took note of theseobservations and models are starting to offer NFC. After Acer lastweek with the presentation of Liquid Express , RIM has confirmed inan interview that his two BlackBerry Curve 9360 and Bold 9900 wouldbe compatible Cityzi "before the end of the year." It isthen of the two extremes in the range that the manufacturer ensuresthat all budgets will have access to its offer NFC.
