Nokia recently announced the Nokia 6212 classic which will consist of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.
“NFC-capable handsets such as the Nokia 6212 classic are set to change the way mobile phone users interact with devices and services in their surroundings,” says Jeremy Belostock, the Head of Near Field Communications for Nokia.
“With the Nokia 6212 classic, people can swap items like business cards or calendar notes by simply tapping their handsets together. With ever-increasing device functions and services available, ease-of-use is essential. One way to keep things simple is NFC.”
The 6212 enables the users to share ‘content, access services and information as well as conduct payments and ticketing with one tap of the device’.
NFC has been engineered for ease of use and safer interactions between NFC enabled devices.
The use of the ticketing and payment option from the phone will require a subscription fee and the installation of the right software.
The payment and ticketing feature will allow users to store their credit card information in the phone safely and henceallowing them to make purchases for travel tickets or mobile payments.
The 6212 will also feature a 2MP camera, 2-inch QVGA display, stereo FM, music player and a slot for the microSD card (upto 4GB).
It is expected to hit the European and the Asian market in Q3 of 2008.
