Google adopting this technology as part of Android is really a great advantage. Since Android is already successful and is able to find a place for itself in almost all the smart phones in the market. There have been lots of discussions about NFC before but it never made big. Apple iphone created itself an iconic image since lot of companies have made some application software for different domains to work on the iphone and ipad. Now it is chance for Android to be embraced by many companies.

The article said the distance is 4 inches, not feet. There are a lot of security schemes like encryption which can be upscaled to more than 128 bit. If NXP and Google and some others are getting along with this... I say it will arrive to our hands and will definitely work out. Well, it's already being deployed in some cities around the world like Paris. We are seeing this start and now is only tag reading... but that enables apps already. Is fun to see it all brew.

I was thinking gone are the days when Google was known primarily as search engine....

I feel the feature that your phone can work as electronic ticket is really very promising. Atleast we dont have to worry about carrying tickets when we travel.

Yes. That is the other side of this technology. But they will take care of the security issues. It is very good how Google is empowering firms and hope they do not make their grave. Being everything in this age is tough and Android must have a balance.

Mobile ticketing, electronic money, electronic ID, etc. are all good application of NFC. The penetration of NFC is not only depending on applications but also relying on security. If people standing 4 feet from you can steal your money electromagically, there will be problems to deal with. What's your opinion on it?
