Description

Near Field Communication

  • Nokia 6216

The Nokia 6216 classic is a stylish phone that features touch-based Near Field Communication technology, a fast 3G connection, and an integrated 2 megapixel camera. This is Nokia's first SIM-based NFC device which enables operators to build NFC services on to the SIM card.

  • Nokia 6212

Nokia 6212 classic is a classically designed and durable handset featuring NFC technology, a 2 megapixel camera, and a 3G connection.

Built-in NFC technology allows to use the phone for e.g. payment, ticketing and sharing content. 3G makes internet connection faster, and NFC "touch to browse" type features can be used to make browsing easier. Multi operating frequency phone can be used globally (WCDMA 850/2100, GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900).

  • Nokia 6131

With Nokia 6131 NFC phone you can have your credit card, travel card and loyalty card in your phone and use it as a multi-purpose smart card. Use the Nokia 6131 NFC to pay for your purchases with speed and ease or access any mobile services, e.g. weather forecast and the latest news just by touching a tag.

The Nokia 6131 NFC supports JSR 257 for 3rd party NFC application developers. Flip open the Nokia 6131 NFC with a unique one-touch push-to-open design for comfortable one-hand messaging, dialing and answering calls. The 6131 NFC features a brilliant 16.7-million "true color" main display and 262,144-color outer display, ideal for use with the 1.3-megapixel camera and playing music with the AAC/MP3 player and FM radio with Visual Radio technology.

 

  • P2P Applications

With NFC we will be able to pick up information from our environment. NFC allows mobile devices to read information stored in NFC-tags on everyday objects. For example posters, bus stop signs, street signs, medicines, certificates, food packaging and many more.

By adding NFC-tags to posters and magazine advertisements, readers can access existing mobile services like hotlines, sms and network or internet based content and services with their NFC phone.

 

  • Payment & Ticketing

NFC provides for contactless tickets and cards to be held in handsets like the Nokia 6131 NFC. Instead of carrying transport tickets, loyalty and credit cards separately, consumers can choose to store several cards in their NFC-enabled mobile phone. The Nokia 6131 NFC holds a similar functionality found in standard contactless smart cards that are used worldwide in credit cards and tickets for public transit systems.

Once an application, for example a credit card, has been securely provisioned to the NFC enabled phone, customers can pay by simply waving their phone at a point-of-sale reader. At the same time the NFC-handset offers enhanced security as each transaction requires a separate user confirmation. For additional convenience a transaction history is easily at hand and consumers can take part in several loyalty programs without sacrificing space in their wallet.

Payment and ticketing applications will be stored in a secure element in the NFC device. The secure element is a smart card chip capable of storing multiple applications, e.g. SIM card, secure memory card or an additional embedded smart card chip in the NFC device.

Contactless tickets start a new era for transport and event ticketing with their speed and flexibility. With NFC-enabled mobile phones, consumers can buy tickets, receive them on their handset and then go through “fast track” turnstiles while others wait. A balance can be checked online or tickets can be updated remotely.

Additional information can be made readily available for consumers for instance by bringing an NFC-enabled phone close to a sign with NFC-tag to quickly download a public transport timetable.

Near Field Communication (NFC) is an evolution of contactless and short range RFID technologies. NFC enables easy and intuitive ways of using mobile phones with touch-based technology – operating at a distance of only a few centimeters.

NFC is based on pre-existing contactless payment and ticketing standards that are used on a daily basis by millions of people and devices worldwide.
