This week, technology professionals have been gathering at the WIMA 2009 trade show in Monaco, where everything to do with NFC is being discussed, promoted and showcased. NFC, for those who don’t know, stands for Near Field Communication and is essentially like Bluetooth for payment systems, however it can be used to transfer all other types of data, quickly and easily, too. The idea is you can pay for items such as tickets or bills with a swipe of your mobile phone.

Nokia are playing a big role at WIMA and have taken the opportunity to show off the 6216, an NFC-equipped mobile phone with the technology hidden inside the SIM, making transactions easier and improving security. It works something like this: your credit card information would be stored on an NFC SIM, you wave the phone in front of a payment terminal, the transaction completes and you’re on your way!

The Nokia 6126 is a lightweight candybar handset – just 88 grams – with a 2 megapixel camera and LED flash, a MicroSD card slot, an FM radio, A2DP Bluetooth and a simple 2″ 240×320 screen. It is also a 3G device and has Opera Mini pre-installed, but the phone is designed to show off the SIM based NFC function, so fancy features are not important. At this stage Nokia have said the phone will be out later in the year, but have not stated a price or where it will be available. However, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this make it to the UK market, given the success of Nokia’s extended trial of NFC technology with O2 last year.
