NFC(Near Field Communication) Technology: Latest Android iPhone Samsung HTC And Other Mobiles Now Have Enabled Chips


NFC logoIf you follow cellphones releasing this year, you might have surely heard about NFC (iPhone just junked it, you might remember it now). In the near future the world will be taken over by the near field no it's not the corn field across the road it is the Near Field Technology which gadget manufacturers, retailers and many other organizations hope will bring powerful new features to smartphones and much more.

So, tell us how good it is to shop at a nearest supermarket without any bankcards or cash? How better will it be to buy tickets at a metro station with a touch of mobile phone skipping the long queues?
Near Field Communication (NFC) technology is set to make this possibility. The customers who are carrying NFC phone can make payment transactions, interchange digital content and connect the devices with a touch or to a few centimeters.

Whats is NFC ?

Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimetres. Present and anticipated applications include contact-less transactions, data exchange, and simplified setup of more complex communications such as Wi-Fi.

NFC standards cover communications protocols and data exchange formats, and are based on existing radio-frequency identification (RFID) standards including ISO/IEC 14443 and FeliCa.

Uses of NFC ?

    How NFC works
  • Access Control: Replacing traditional keys for either physical access (hotel room) or control (starting a car)
  • Ticketing: Replacing paper tickets for social events and public transportation
  • Contact-less Payments: Mobile payments debited from financial or MNO linked accounts
  • Interactive World: Marketing and exchange of information such as schedules, maps, business card and coupon delivery using NFC Marketing tags
  • Media Sharing: Transfer images, videos, music between mobile phones
  • Social media e.g. "Like" on Facebook, "Follow" on Twitter via NFC smart stickers in retail stores
NF is not a newfangled technology but it has made it tot the mainstream products just like smartphones.With an NFC chip and antenna, you can use your smartphone to make con-tactless payments.
What's more, with NFC, you can bump smartphones to exchange information with friends or business colleagues, or use your phone to read smart tags.
You can even use NFC to connect to secure networks without having to enter complex authorization codes.

Ultimately, NFC makes it a whole lot easier to perform a huge range of digitized tasks.

Is it Secure ? 

Fundamentally resreachers believe that NFC is seecure because of its short range. So if a hacker wants to snag into your NFC signal he must have to be in a closed proximity, or may be very close in other words, you'd know they were there.
