Nokia and Poken join forces !

Nokia needs no introduction – it has been and still is the world’s leader within the mobile phone industry. They represent the peak of the mobile technology iceberg, and everything you hear as being the latest in the industry most likely comes from them. NFC, although relatively new, is therefore no stranger to Nokia.

For that reason, we’ve developed a Poken application that comes pre-installed in the Nokia C7 phone, that allow users to collect not only people, but also places and things using NFC technology.

Basically, with a simple touch of the Nokia C7 to another NFC Poken device, you can collect tonnes of information and decide later what you want to keep.

The Poken Mobile Application has been developed by the Poken Team, and will be preinstalled in each C7 phones by June 2011. Considering the reception we received at WIMA in mid April, the partnership with Nokia turned out to be a truly smart move in the mobile industry.

So stay tuned and check out how all the magic happened!
