#1
Nokia has shown off its third fully integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile phone, the Nokia 6216 classic. The new arrival is Nokia's first SIM-based NFC device which enables operators to build NFC services on to the SIM card. The Nokia 6216 classic is expected to start shipping in the third quarter of 2009 in select markets with an estimated retail price of EUR 150 before taxes and subsidies.

"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."

Owner's credit card information can be stored securely on the SIM card and waving the device in front of a contactless terminal enables quick payment and simple ticketing services.

"The launch of the Nokia 6216 classic SIM-based NFC handset is a great step forward for payment and ticketing services," says Alex Sinclair, the Chief Technology Officer of the GSM Association. "We believe this will drive more rapid deployment of the technology and expect this to signal launch of NFC services in the market by operators.

In addition to the NFC technology, the Nokia 6216 classic is outfitted with a digital camera, stereo FM radio and music player, 3G connectivity and a microSD slot which is expandable up to 8GB.
