China Mobile presents its NFC rollout plans

10 DEC 2012

At the GSMA NFC & Mobile Money Summit earlier this year China Mobile outlined how it plans to deploy NFC, which it is currently trialling ahead of a commercial launch in 2013. Xiong Hui, the operator’s vice general manager, e-commerce, presented a slide with a list of six handset brands which will supply NFC devices for China Mobile’s trial and service, along with their launch dates: Samsung (Q3, 2012); HTC (Q3, 2012), Huawei (Q4, 2012), ZTE (Q4, 2012), Lenovo (Q1, 2013) and Coolpad (Q1, 2013).
