Today in Mobile

Nokia said today that its NFC-enabled C7 will enable users to unlock additional levels of Angry Birds by tapping their handsets together. And as El Reg noted, other levels can be unlocked by tapping the phone against hidden tags in various locations, creating a kind of scavenger hunt for gamers. NFC gets a ton of hype for its ability to support transactions, of course, and that space could eventually be fairly lucrative. But that’s a long way off, and until the mobile wallet gets legs we’re going to see a lot more NFC-based mobile marketing efforts like Nokia’s.
