Unannounced, previously unseen Nokia 801 Symbian Belle NFC phone shown in demo video at the IFA trade show
Some are a calling it the Nokia 801 NFC phone, others thinks it’s the Nokia N8-01. Whatever you want to call it, a video being shown at the IFA trade show in Berlin was showing off a 3D render of an NFC phone we haven’t seen before. A particularly svelte looking piece of NFC loving hardware at that, and with Nokia’s own brand of industrial design cues that would make Apple weep into their big pot of money.
We want to preface this post by letting you know this falls into the dubious rumor category at this point, but could be a real NFC phone we are yet to see come to fruition. No one can say that IFA hasn’t had its share of drama this year with the 7″ Samsung slate being pulled from the floor and now the sighting of what appears to be a previously unseen Nokia Symbian Belle NFC phone. The show has been akin to a tiara tantrum at a beauty pageant this year which we find most amusing, we have to say.

NFC Nokia Astound for T-Mobile free with contract
If you are in the market for an NFC-enabled handset that doesn’t cost very much in upfront mullah, you may want to take a look at the NFC Nokia Astound. T-Mobile, via its website is currently giving the NFC Nokia Astound away at no charge as long as an accompanying 2-year agreement for service is signed up for. UPDATEWe even found it where you get $25 back, see below.
I have never heard of the NFC Nokia Astound, what’s it like?
If the NFC Nokia Astound passed you by when it launched in March and you know nothing about it let us fill you in on a few details. In essence it is a smartphone that runs on Nokia’s Symbian mobile OS and is cut from the same cloth as Nokia’s new C7 flagship model. Oddly, nowhere in the marketing for the NFC Nokia Astound does it mention it is NFC-enabled, not on the Nokia website and not on the T-Mobile site either, but it is. Even more strange than having an in-demand feature that is not marketed is the fact that when you get the NFC Nokia Astound home, you have to manually enable the NFC chip inside. The phone even ships with NFC tag writing software so we are unsure why this would not be highlighted on phone specifications, but hey ho, it’s got the good stuff and that’s all that matters.
