Taiwan-based chip maker MStar Semiconductor announced today it is supplying NFC technology to Russia-based phone maker Fly for one or more handsets for the European market to be released as early as next month.
MStar said the first phone would be available in the UK market in February, apparently targeted for the enterprise market for NFC workforce management applications.
Neither MStar nor Fly released the type of NFC models planned for Europe. Fly mainly produces low-cost feature phones for developing markets, such as Russia, other Eastern European countries, and India. It has a few Android models in its portfolio.
