Cell Phone Wallet

Nokia in Europe have launched a new phone that uses ‘Near Field Communication’-which is a short-range, high frequency wireless communication technology that enables the exchange of data between devices over about a 10 centimeter distance - to enable functions like mobile payment. With the right retail systems the phone can be used as a credit card or even a pass to use on the train or bus.

The phone can also share content like images and videos by touching it with another 6212 and the features section on the Nokia suggests that the ‘touch’ will give access to other location based services when available/developed.
