Comes fully integrated with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, the Nokia 6216 classic expected to start shipping in Q3 of 2009 in select markets with pricing set at a mere EUR 150. The NFC technology offers more convenient sharing of content as well as secure payment and ticketing transactions.
“The Nokia 6216 classic will be amongst the first commercial devices in the market complying with operator requirements using the SIM card in connection to secure transactions with Near Field Communications,” says Jeremy Belostock, head of near field communications at Nokia. “With the Nokia 6216 classic in your pocket and the ticketing applications on the SIM you can replace the multitude of cards in your wallet. Having the applications on the SIM consumers can bring their secure applications to their next Nokia NFC enabled phone.”
