HTC will finally bring an NFC-enabled handset to market, but it isn’t headed to American (or even European shores). OK, so it is still very likely the HTC Stunning (or something very similar to it) will find its way to other regions, but for now the only word on the manufacturer’s first NFC-capable device comes by way of Chai Hongfend, Executive Vice-President of China UnionPay. The bank card network is working closely with HTC on the release of the device, which will take advantage of China UnionPay’s mobile payments system.
The Stunning is said to feature a 4-inch screen and run on the Android operating system, but little else is known. The phone will launch in China later this year, but expect HTC to capitalize on the mobile payment revolution in other parts of the world, as well.
