Today Nokia announced the 6216 Classic, a bar-style phone that has Near Field Communications technology included as part of the SIM card. The antenna and NFC software remain on the phone itself, but user data, such as PIN codes and and ID numbers, are stored in the SIM card. By including the NFC technology on the SIM card, it allows network operators to custom tailor services to the NFC capabilities of the handset and make for easier billing to the end user. The 6216 Classic also has a camera, FM radio, 3G and support for microSD cards up to 8GB. It will be available in select markets for $195 starting in the third quarter.
