Nokia adds another Near Field Communication (NFC) device to its line up. NFC is a short-distance communication protocol (<1 feet) that can be used for contactless payments, among other things. The Nokia 6216 Classic stores your payment information (credit card…) in the SIM card, which already has some robust security features. The 6216 classic is an “average” phone that’s meant for a mass-market. The idea is that more people would care about easy payments that they care about installing eye-candy applications, for example.
