Nokia developers are working with Rovio Mobile, on a new version of Angry Birds. The Finland based company created the hugely successful game almost two years ago for the Apple iOS. Nokia is working with them on an NFC compatible version that will allow players to work together to reach higher levels, as well as play alone.
It seems like everyone is getting ready for the newest wave in mobile technology. Near Field Communications (NFC) has been on the radar for awhile now, but elusively out of reach; until now. More big name companies joined together with partners last year and early this year, in an effort to be the first to make the NFC technology workable.
While the payment system is a big thing, it isn’t the only thing this technology will be capable of doing. However, getting the payment system structured will open up several other angles for development. Making payments by mobile phone, buying and redeeming tickets, and transportation passes are just the tip of what the technology can do.
Nokia wanted to tap into this area, by creating a social and single player experience out of the “Angry Birds” game. Players will be able to join forces with other players who have Nokia (NFC) enabled phones, to unlock higher levels and special areas of the game. Players will also be able to search for merchandise in real brick and mortar stores to gain access, in case their friends don’t have a Nokia phone.
The game will be launched in the Nokia Ovi store and support symbian (NFC) devices like the T-Mobile, Nokia Astound. The Nokia C7 will also be compatible.
