    C7 question

    Hi,

    I read in several articles that the Nokia C7 has a NFC chip which will be activated by a firmware update in 2011. Is there a beta firmware for developers available with which I can activate the chip now? And what kind of SDK has to be used to develop apps for it, the same as for the 6131 and 6212 or will there be a special one?

    Thanks in advance!
    Best wishes, Chris

    Hi,
    If I remember correct, Symbian^3 SDK version 1.0 will support NFC development. You might need to install NFC libraries as a plug-in to the SDK. I don't remember exactly when it is coming out.

    By default it is ON, You can go to settings -> connectivity and see if there is any options there, In Nokia probably NFC's trade name is Tippit or something like this. You can put it on /off there. Now Nokia is providing Symbian SDK for NFC development but new Qt mobility is coming as part of 1.2

    Re: C7 question

    Hi guys,

    Got my shipment of C7 phone , However I am not being able to play around with its NFC features. although the Phone can detect tags and says undefined format.
    I tried my apps developed for Nokia 6131 which simply read the ID of a mifare but in vain.

    Please suggest me if any of you get a breakthrough.

    Regards
    Dush..

    Re: C7 question

    Are you developing app with Symbian C++ or Java ME?
    What kinds of tag you are reading and sp? Can you try with other devices to read it?

    Re: C7 question

    Hello
    I have the same problem with my French C7. I know that operators block the NFC upgrade but I would very like to unlock my NFC chip. Do anyone know how to download the Nokia Software in order to unlock my C7 ?

    Thanks !
    Antoine

    There has been no official communication from Nokia about any Symbian powered smartphones having now, or in the future, NFC support. Once such announcement will be made, if ever, it will include details about SDKs and tools.

    Re: C7 question

    There has been demonstrations of the C7-00 with PR2.0 installed which has enabled the NFC chip. thjis was available temporarily for download and also T-mobile USA are shipping the C7-00 with the chip activated as per the recent Developer Newsletter. Does anyone know when we will be able to download the update as it clearly works and is in distribution.
