Norwegian newspaper VG recites an article from Gizmodo, and finally NFC just might get a well deserved push forward!
Gizmodo writes that Eric Schmidt’s was showing off a Nexus S at the Web 2.0 conference, but more exciting than the handset itself is the new feature it’s packing courtesy of Android 2.3: near field communication. Hello, Android walletphone.
NFC (Near Field Communication) is in my opinion one of the most exiting technological advances coming.
NFC, is a short-range high frequency wireless communication technology which enables the exchange of data between devices over about a 10 centimeter (around 4 inches) distance. The technology is a simple extension of the ISO/IEC 14443 proximity-card standard (proximity card, RFID) that combines the interface of a smart card and a reader into a single device.
