For those living in the UK, the good news is that thanks to a leaked video, the Nokia Lumia 610 appears to be launching on the Orange carrier and will come with NFC. Microsoft had long teased Windows Phone users with the possibility of NFC, and it looks like if you were looking forward to an NFC-enabled Windows Phone device, the Lumia 610 might very well be the handset you are looking for. Not only will the NFC capabilities allow for the device to support Mastercard’s PayPass, but will also allow the device to pair with some of Nokia’s accessories, like its wireless Bluetooth speakers. The YouTube video has since been taken down, but YouTube user TheGadgetBuff has managed to capture it and has since reuploaded a slightly choppy version of it. Check it out above for more details.
