    Nokia 6216 Release date

    Hi all,

    Is someone has information about a more precise release date (the 6216 is expected for the third quarter). The sim centric aspect of this mobile is very important for developping new services with career.

    And what about new NFC handset ? (Symbian s60) ?

    Thanks.

    From the main page:
    http://shop.nokia.co.uk/nokia-uk/def...ink=firstlvnav

    there's no NFC device now.
    6212 disappeared...6216 too.

    Is Nokia dropping NFC ?

    The 6216 is on the French site :
    http://www.nokia.fr/les-produits/tou...a-6216-classic

    Hmmm... so the next step is probably: either it appears on the UK site, or it vanishes from the French site.

    I believe the smiley that best describes this situation would be:

    It's true the nokia 6216 is on the french nokia site, it's on since several month (since june or july).
    I called Nokia in France, and it seems that the nokia will be available in the begin of 2010.

    Things I have heard, is that Nokia already stopped the production of the 6212 (remnants available). This should be a good sign, that the 6216 is coming soon. From other sides, I have heard that there some troubles with the SWP/HCI Implementations and therefore the phone is that late ... - question of course is: is it Nokia's vault or the one of the UICC Manufacturers?

    @Nokia: What about a statement? would be good for the whole industry, startup, consultants and the developers ...

    best, geri-m

    We desperately need a statement from Nokia about the release date: In our case (a small company) we've invested 1 year for a new NFC-based product, some customers are already using it, but we can't sell it because there are no available NFC phones at present.
    We think that there are many others developers in a similar situation.

    The fact that 6212 is no longer available is a disaster for our project, we expected Nokia to withdraw a model not before the next one was ready, and we're very upset about that. The 6131 was being sold even after the 6212 was out.

    After a lot of troubles with the SDK, the emulator, IDE etc.. (very unstable and completely unsupported, lots of versioning uncompatibilities), now a stupid commercial problem:
    We're seriously considering of turning to the iPhone for the third quarter, instead of waiting for Godot.

    @Nokia: are you online ?

    AFAIK, NFC support is not expected until Symbian^4.

    I am afraid a very disappointing announcement is going to be made in the near future about the 6216.

    Greetings.

    It's not a rumor any more. It's confirmed.

    So, there's no need to keep this Nokia NFC forum open, IMHO.

    We can't buy 6212 because it's retired.
    We can't buy 6216 because it's cancelled.

    There are no Nokia NFC phones available at the moment.

    We can only turn to Samsung
    http://www.nearfieldcommunicationswo...yer-one-avila/
    or Sagem
    http://www.nearfieldcommunicationswo...-the-over-50s/
    ..there was also the fonelabs one
    http://www.nearfieldcommunicationswo...st-nfc-phones/
    ...any other suggestion ?
