Austrian-based Mobilkom announced they have developed a chip-based NFC system using the VDV-KA international standard for mobile ticketing in conjunction with the Austrian Federal Railways group OBB. In partnership with Nokia, the OBB has launched a pilot project involving 100 test customers and 100 ticket collectors on the test routes Vienna-Krems and Vienna-Gmund, using the NFC-capable 6212 classic handset for a three month trial period.
Mobilkom deployed the first commercial 3G network in Europe and appear set to get Felica-styled enabled handset on the street well ahead of the curve there as well. Congrats to Christian and his team for making it happen!
