Nokia has introduced an enhanced version of their Near Field Communication (NFC) shell for the 3220. The shell will allow users to pay for items using debit or credit accounts as well as act as an electronic ticket, just by touching the shell to an NFC reader. Both MasterCard and Visa have worked with Nokia to support NFC. Along with other credit banks and NFC creators Sony and Philips, they have made sure it will be a common standard, and is fairly easy for business to add as a payment or ticket technology. Users in Japan can already pay for items, board trains, and even open doors using NFC enhanced phones.
