Yesterday, Nokia announced a new mobile phone called Nokia 6212 Classic. This phone features NFC technology (Near Field Communication) that allows users to connect two phones and simultaneously share content such as audio, video files, etc. This, of course, requires both phones to have NFC, but compared to Bluetooth, this technology can fit in smaller devices, consumes less power and sharing is safer.
This phone's proud owners will be able to record their credit card information on their phone and access their bank accounts through their pet. Of course, transactions will be secured and won’t be carried out until the owner confirms it using an additional code.
The dimensions are 114.7x47.1x14.5 mm, and it weighs 88 grams. It packs a 2 inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, a media player supporting most digital audio formats and an FM receiver. Apart from NFC this phone also has Bluetooth.
It has 22MB of internal memory and microSD slot for adding additional memory and it supports up 4GB SD HC cards.
The phone will hit the European and Asian markets in Q3 2008 an should be priced at around €200.
