Nokia yesterday introduced the Nokia 6212 3G phone which incorporates Near Field Communications (NFC).

This is expected to be available in EU and Asian markets later in the summer for around Euros 200.

NFC allows payments and other transactions to be carried out (something like a mobile Oyster card) by tapping the phone on to an NFC reader. It can also link to credit card information on the phone for NFC credit card payment systems.

Photos, weblinks, etc can also be transferred between devices and Nokia have a NFC headset.

In the UK Oyster is becoming widespread and Barclaycard have a combined Oyster/CreditCard, integration with phones is the next step.
