New Nokia Handset That Thinks It’s a Credit Card

New Nokia Handset That Thinks It's a Credit Card

Just when we thought we'd seen it all- Nokia announces that its latest handset can act as a credit card! Its 6216 classic may look like a regular cell phone but it has the ability to securely store a user's credit card information on the SIM card using NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.

Paying for purchases from stores would literally be as simple as swiping the phone over a sensor.

Additionally, the NFC technology does more than just store user info; users can also share content such as photos, Web links, audio files or contact data through the Near Field Communication system from phone to phone.

Additional features on the 6216 Classic include a 2.0-megapixel camera, stereo FM radio and mp3 player, 3G connectivity and a microSD slot that is expandable up to 8GB.

Full specs can be found here.
