Explore Nexus S: Near Field Communication

Explore Nexus S: Near Field Communication


>>WILSON: Hi, my name is Simon Wilson and
I’m an Engineer on the Android team. One of the great new features of Gingerbread in Nexus
S is NFC or Near Field Communication. NFC is a secure technology that is being trialed
in countries all over the world and is already in wide use throughout Japan. NFC allows your
Nexus S to read information from what we call smart text or everyday objects that have NFC
chips in them. These can be anything from stickers and movie posters to t-shirts. Your
Nexus S can read text, URLs, contact information and many other types of data from these smart
objects. Simply place the back of your phone within a few inches of the object to read
the data. And within mere seconds, my phone has read the information from this object.
Pretty cool, huh? You can also save tags you’ve scanned for later use in the Tags App included
with your Nexus S and even store ones you like. NFC only works at objects at a close
distance. Currently, your Nexus S can only read information from other objects. Information
from your Nexus S cannot be read by other devices or objects. And if you like, you can
turn NFC off right in the settings menu on your Nexus S.

    @hayashiyuuzen Well yes… sort of.. except that you don't have to take a photo of a certain pixel image, but it's a chip hidden inside the object you are scanning.

    @hayashiyuuzen nope, in QR you have to scan it with your phone's camera and allows your phone to read a certain value (a url or something) but in NFC you can transmit data from and to the phone. For example, it can help you to achieve mobile payments instead of using the credit card. This tech will boom within a couple of years and i think it will be awesome.

    NFC cell phones equipped with the Bio-metric Identity technologies are the only hope for future humanity to get rid of most of the economic crimes popularly know as corruption along with all other crimes. As most of the crimes like bribe, extortion, fraud theft, etc including the violent crimes like mugging, robbery even murders mostly committed for robbing money or to take revenge against it or in preventing it.

    @Rayz093 You're calling me a hater. Take a look in the mirror dipshit, I responded to a hateful comment posted by you. How the hell can you say android failed? In the U.S. the only phone you can get with NFC is the Nexus S which runs Android. Now that WP7 is the OS for your beloved Nokia, you can wait a couple of years before WP7 supports NFC, then you can wait another two years for Microsoft to fix all the crappy glitches they're so famous for so that it will actually work.

    Google needs better presenters.
    I won't buy the product if that guy is some sort of an engineer! but I'll buy it if he speaks like a human! 😛

    He is a tech guy, most likely if he is on a date he plays with his gadget instead of enjoying his date, that is called being a nerd, most of those dudes in this field are that way, boys & girls.

    The iPhone will not be able to have the NFC capability. The iPhone 5’s all aluminum and glass body would block information from being transmitted to a terminal.

    why the fuu do you have an iPhone?
    Toss that ancient device in the bin and get yourself a 2013 android device like the Xperia Z.

    Apple is crap. The operating system is literally the North Korea of operating systems, there's no NFC, no DLNA, the screen is tiny, the pixel density is pretty shit for the price (all android phones now come with 1080p screens with 440+ pixels per inch). I can go on and on. Stop giving your hard earned cash to a company that makes a status symbol.

    You're probably a woman. Very few of you care about science and tech, go play with your lip stick and barbie doll. Making fun of a successful engineer like him when you have to give blow jobs to pass grade 12 math is pathetic.

    pfffffftttttt

    errr..i bought the iPhone because i see it featured everywhere in the TV and everyone in the UK has one and they often upgrade every 6 months. The iPhone's TV commercials convinced me (the new panaramic photo feature, the in-call equalizer, etc)

    "the new panaramic photo feature"

    lol

    That shit is ancient news for non iPhone users. What do you mean "new"? I'm talking almost decade old news. Even on the iPhone you were able to get that by downloading an app.

    You bought an 800 dollar phone because of TV ads? Are you serious.

    Man, I gotta give credit where credit's due. How they manage to get the iSheep to flock to the vastly inferior and vastly more expensive products is beyond me.

    No NFC, no DLNA, no wireless charging, closed OS..
