Differences of Hotknot and NFC

The video doesn't quite show what is the great features that Hotknot delivers while NFC couldn't. To me, it comes down to the choice between literally touch vs proximity. I prefer the latter that NFC delivers.


On the other hands, BLE is aiming the eWallet market as well. It might be interesting to compare all 3 techologies and rate their pros and cons.

Obvious application?

I see what seems to be an obvious application for this - swapping phone numbers and other contact info (rather than pictures of trees).

As a reporter I have covered NFC since its inception. I also remember covering Nokia's early implementation of NFC inside its handset in Europe in early 2000's.

I now see the tide changing big time. Gone is Nokia. How NFC will stay inside handsets will be interesting to watch.
