Nokia and Verisign showed a RFID reader mobile phone at the CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment 2004 Conference in San Francisco.
The demonstration of the Nokia RFID prototype shows how a Nokia mobile phone, equipped with an RFID reader, can enable consumers to access information tagged with EPCs (Electronic Product Codes) and obtain background on products like pricing, origin, product descriptions and more. ZDNet reports that the prototype is based on the Nokia 5140.
We reported about several gadgets that get RFID enabled recently:
RFID Reader Wristwatch
Human Subdermal RFID Chip - VeriChip
RFID Wearable Smart Badge from nTag Interactive
Tiny RFID Chip in Wristwatch Glass
Interesting here is that Verisign seems to want to be a player in this market.
