This is great and I'd love this to be expanded to Minneapolis (I already think they use Nokia 6131 NFC phones when they do check people Go cards , but not 100% sure).

The only problem is that No Symbian Belle devices have been released in the US yet, (at least not officially, I'm certain you can get them on import), and the only device officially released here that is an NFC enabled Nokia is the Nokia Astound on T-Mobile. And yes, I'm certain that future windows phones by Nokia will have NFC, just like every Symbian Belle device and the N9 has today.
