Today Nokia announced the arrival of their newest model, the Nokia 6212. This 3G handset features integrated Near Field Communication and allows consumers to share content, and access services and information.
The Near Field Communication (NFC) feature is especially exciting, and as reported in Nokia’s press release earlier today:
Near Field Communication is designed for intuitive, simple and safe interaction between electronic devices. By tapping an NFC-enabled tag, consumers can receive new content such as weblinks, audio files or contact data directly to their phone. They can activate a profile in their handset or open applications such as FM radio or web browser. Photos and videos can easily be shared by tapping another NFC-capable phone and pairing with a Bluetooth NFC-enabled device, like the new NFC variant of the Nokia BH-210 headset, happens with just one touch.
This slimline mobile phone comes with an extensive list of features including a bright 2-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, stereo FM radio and music player supporting multiple formats.
The technology of this phone is set to change the way that mobile phone users interact with their devices and with one another.
The 6212 is expected to start shipping in the third quarter of 2008 in select markets in Europe and Asia, at an estimated price of EUR 200 before taxes and subsidies. Let the pairing revolution begin.
