You must have noticed that some companies are releasing NFC enabled smartphones in the market, but most people don’t know what it is and what they can do with it.
Near Field Communication is an ultramodern wireless communication system. It helps you share data with NFC enabled cell phones and other devices.
Doesn’t Bluetooth offer the same facilities? Good question and that is where Near Field Communication scores very high. When I said data, it does not only mean PDF, song, image and video. With the help of this technology, users can pay wireless, enjoy multiplayer gaming, set up Wi-Fi network and do a lot more.
How It Works? – An NFC enabled device creates a radio wave that connects with another NFC device or an object that has the NFC tag. While two NFC enabled smartphones can read and exchange data, items that hold NFC tags are mainly passive devices and provide one way communication. Only users can fetch data from them, but they can’t read phone data. For instance, if a poster has the tag, you can wave the smartphone in front of it to get more information about the advertised product/service.
Let’s find out some of the things you can do and will able to do using this groundbreaking technology.
That is how Near Field Communication is changing our lives. Have you tried this technology? Share your experience with us.
