Today Nokia announced their latest NFC-enabled handset - the classic-shaped Nokia 6212 classic. Near field communication or NFC is the next generation of mobile connectivity (based on Bluetooth though) and it allows user to seamlessly share content, pay bills or use their cellphone as an electronic traveling ticket.
While NFC may sound exciting, it will take long before the technology gets wide support. The Nokia 6212 classic is not the first Nokia handset to feature NFC though - last year saw the announcement of the NFC version of Nokia 6131 for example.
Beside NFC, the Nokia 6212 classic features dual-band UMTS support and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity. It has a 2-inch 16M color TFT display with QVGA resolution, much like the Nokia 6500 classic. The 6212 classic is nowhere near the minimalist dimensions of the 6500 but it's compact nonetheless and weighs only 88 g.
Onboard the Nokia 6212 classic you will find a 2 megapixel snapper, miniUSB port, microSD memory card slot (up to 4GB), FM radio, and stereo Bluetooth. All this runs on the popular non-smartphone Nokia S40 software platform.
The Nokia 6212 classic will be available in Q3 2008 for around 200 euro before subsidies and taxes.
oh also don't try to go and say nokia has a better design on there budget phones then samsung or lg thats just retarded and your trying to say they're made of "cheap" material?? have you ever even owned one? even expensive phones lg and samsung have ...
quite agree with wat is written below,nokia and sony ericsson are those really presentable,unlike other brand...they are just not well designed and the function is not as good as nokia and sony... perhaps nokia concentrated in manufacturing handpho...
Stop looking at the design and embrace the new technology! As someone else said before, put an oyster card or octopus car on it and be happy :D The design will come in time!
