NFC on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 – Video


If you read our full BlackBerry Bold 9900 review earlier this week you would have seen the short overview I did about NFC, Near Field Communications. Clove have kindly sent me a NFC Smart Tag so I have been able to record a short video demonstrating how it works.

Although currently these Smart Tags are not in everyday circulation I do feel that as time goes on the this technology will have real benefits, in particular if making wireless mobile payments takes off in a big way.

As you will see in the video, using Smart Tags works well and is a quick and easy way to see what someone is advertising/promoting. In addition the tags can securely store personal data such as debit and credit card information, loyalty program data, PINs and networking contacts, among other information.

It is early days for NFC and BlackBerry Smartphones but I am intrigued to what the lies ahead.

You can see the video below:
