Nokia's 6212 supports NFC

249845Nokia has announced the 6212, which features Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The NFC technology is designed for simple and intuitive interaction between devices. In the case of the 6212, you can do things like tap two phones together to transfer contact information and other data, or make purchases by storing your personal data in the device and swiping it over a surface. Nokia also plans to use this technology for physical hotlinking (a term which I just invented), so you will be able to tap something like an advertisement and the webpage will appear on your device.

The Nokia 6212 also sports a two megapixel camera, 3G support, and expandable memory. It is expected to be released in Q3 2008 in Europe and Asia for EUR 200.
