Results: 

Mobilkom says it has seen a significant increase in transactions for mobile ticketing, vending and other mobile commerce services thanks to NFC, which cuts out the number of steps users must carry out to conduct the SMS- or mobile-Internet based transactions. The telco hasn’t released transaction figures involving the NFC phones, however. It says it has sold 40,000 of the Nokia 6131 and 6212 NFC phones since putting them in stores in fall 2007, although it acknowledges it probably would have sold as many of the same models without NFC. All told, mobilkom has installed 470 tags in subway stations and 100 in national railway stations, along with 450 on vending machines in stations. It has also distributed 200,000 “personal” tags in the phone kits, which subscribers can tap to more easily play the mobile lottery, buy ringtones and use other services.
