    NFC reader for Nokia 6212

    I just purchased a 6212 and now I'm looking for a PC (preferably USB) compatible reader.

    Can anyone recommend a working reader that I can do some development with the 6212.

    Thanks Al

    I doubt 6212 will be available now, why dont you try the new C7 Astound https://www.developer.nokia.com/Devi...ns/C7_Astound/

    For using NFC you can also search for NFC enabled Micro SD card, that can give NFC capabilities to any of your mobile phone which supports Micro SD card.

    Have a look at eBay in countries with NFC user-trials. For example here in Germany, Nokia 6212 classic are sold quite regularly. Because there is no Series 40 with NFC currently offered by Nokia, I am not sure if it is worth to go for the Series 40 software platform at all. I too recommend to go for a Nokia C7-00, update it to Symbian Anna and you get NFC. With this model, you can use Java, Qt or whatever you like.

    But im2amit,for running NFC based java apps;mobile must support JSR257 and I think all mobiles does not support JSR257.
    So having only micro SD card slot is not sufficient to work NFC apps on mobile

    These Micro SD cards with NFC capabilities also come with SDKs for various mobile platforms on which they can be used even when the platform do not directly support this JSR.
