NFC applications are so nice that I think Samsung and Android phones are now embracing the right technology to expand the functionality of smartphone to endless imagination. Apple, on the other hand, looks down at this fascinating technology so I wonder if Apple will be out of our eyesight in 3 to 5 years (provided they keep on just improving processors but putting everything in more or less look alike chassises)

I don't think so. There are to many older phones on the market and many of them does not support NFC. Even some of new models of smartphones does not support NFC.

How far and wide NFC apps have already spread is a truly amazing story in my opinion. RFID tags became a big story when Walmart first announced its intention to use it to replace bar codes -- which in the end dind't really happen in a big way. But NFC is another story. The industry is finding a lot of imaginative applications and we are only seeing just the tip of the iceberg.

Many times at the public places we miss to watch our kith,kins,relatives,friends who are also near by. Usually one of us see the other and in their next meet we discuss about this. So if this near field communication if it can be improved with a little more distance then we may have our phones giving a pleasant meeting reminders.
