    Do you mean that for the 610 in general? I think it’s certain to be available in China and I think it is coming soon with Smart. It’s showing in their product page.

      The one on Smart’s website is the non-NFC model. This one is the first NFC Windows Phone 7 handset ever.

      FWIW, sorry about the mess with the comments. :)

      I didn’t realize that it’s a different version. Looking forward to see NFC in Nokia’s next slider phone.

    NFC in the philippines LOL!!! Most places don’t even take a debit card. You can’t even load your LRT cards online or via debit card. It will be 200 years before the philippines ever uses NFC for anything important

    This phone supports 720p right (1280×720)? My recorded video only got a 640×480 resolution meaning its only 480p. How can I change it to the max. video resolution of 720p?
