Nokia wants to enable image sharing on its 808 PureView using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Say that tens time fast. Speaking with Engadget, the company expressed interest in the idea and said “picture sharing would be possible across devices.” Devices, meaning the feature won’t be exclusive to 808 PureView users. Who wouldn’t want to share their 41-megapixel mirror shots with friends using NFC? We’re guessing you’ll only be able to share low-res images, since those 41-megapixel shots exceed 100MB.
Really, though, if the industry did implement such a feature, it would make sharing much more convenient… and very similar to Android’s Beam technology. The company also said it has applied for MasterCard and Visa accreditation in preparation for future mobile payments apps, which will hopefully go live before Nokia starts selling an unlocked version of the PureView sometime in the coming months.
