re: Mobile apps get smarter using NFC

Just bought a Motorola Droid Razr M, because it was smaller (and less expensive) than the Droid Razr Maxx and Droid Razr Maxx HD. That means, it's the low end of the line. It has NFC. That tells me that NFC is not just a feature for select high end phones. Within a year, phones that have it will be widely distributed.

I think things like peer-to-peer pairing, "secure" transaction, and the ability for users to program what they want their NFC stickers to do are a few good examples NFC do better than barcodes.

Cost is the main factor. Barcode and magnetic card are lower cost than NFC. What are the values of NFC bringing on the table given Google has been using bar code to do eWallet?

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.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
