We won't bother getting into all the usual stuff about RFID tags and privacy (yawn), but without hardly anyone noticing last month Nokia came out with a "Mobile RFID Kit" as an optional accessort for its 5140 cellphone. It's not meant for the general public, but rather for businesses that want their employees to be able to do things like use their phone to be able to touch a tag on a machine and automatically get its maintenance history or what it's made out of, or call people just by touching their phone to an RFID tagged photo of them.
