Nokia Lumia 720

NFC pairing, sharing and tagging

Nokia Lumia 720 Mix Radio pair with nfc the bluetooth connection

“NFC means it’s just one tap to connect and listen to your favourite tunes using Nokia wireless accessories including the JBL PlayUp Speaker and Purity by Monster Headphones.”

Nokia specifications list says; with NFC sharing, NFC pairing and NFC tagging.
Payments? Not on the latest (March) Visa or Mastercard lists with approved devices yet. I expect the 720 on the list next month, just like all other nfc enabled Lumia’s. The lists are updated just now and then.
And let us be realistic, I don’t see 1 Nokia Lumia phone participating a mobile wallet with contactless payments yet (Turkcell, Cityzi, ISIS). The Lumia 920 was on the Cityzi list in France, but postponed or is canceled? Adding a (Windows 8) phone to a mobile wallet is not as simple as it seems?
The NFC antenna is on the back of the phone, to the right of the camera.

Ok, the Lumia 720 is much more than NFC.
Nokia calls this device; Chic & Social. For the young and hip .. and wannabe.
The just 9 mm slim polycarbonate unibody with colourful covers is a very trendy design.
The 2 camera’s are one of Nokia’s “key strengths”.
An HD front-facing camera with a wide-angle lens for many friends into one shot, as well as for chatting on Skype. A back-facing camera with wide-angle lens and low light technology.
Nokia Mix Radio; stream your favourite tunes to your phone for free.
Wireless charging is optional. Buy and clip-on an optional wireless charging cover.
O yes, expandable MicroSD memory card!
A 4,3 inch display, a 6,7 Mp camera, a dual-core 1 GHz snapdragon and 512 Mb RAM.
No spectacular hardware, a complete list a little further downwards.

The Nokia Lumia 720 comes in gloss white, matte red, cyan, black and yellow colors.
Available; Rollout is planned to start in Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore in Q1 2013.
Other markets in Q2, including China as well as key markets in Europe, Asia, Africa and India.
