Nokia Launch Mobile RFID Kit

Wednesday 17 March 2004 14:43 CET | News

Nokia has launched the Nokia Mobile RFID Kit, the first integrated solution targeted to the mobile productivity verticals.

Combined with the Nokia 5140, the Nokia Mobile RFID Kit is the first GSM phone integrated product offering with RFID reading capability. Shipments of the Kit will begin mid-2004. The Nokia Mobile RFID Kit contains two Xpress-on RFID Reader Shells compatible with the Nokia 5140 mobile phone, the relevant application software for the phone, and twenty RFID tags. The Nokia Mobile RFID Kit extends the mobility of field force personnel by integrating RFID reader technology to a familiar portable device. Simply by touching a smart object, the user can initiate tasks in their Nokia phone - call and send text messages or access databases and record new data entries. The Nokia Mobile RFID Kit is part of the Nokia Field Force Solution and operates in the 13.56MHz frequency range, at a very short range of typically 2-3 centimetres, using the ISO-14443A standard. The short reading distance is optimal for field force solutions where tags placed in premises and devices are read individually by a workforce that moves. The Nokia Mobile RFID Kit is an enabler of Nokias Life Goes Mobile vision in making mobile phones more intuitive for users. Touching a smart object with a mobile phone is an easy way to connect to mobile services and content. It will not only improve the experience of using current services, but also create entirely new applications and value.
