About Near Field Communications (NFC)
NFC enabled devices and other devices such as smart phones by Samsung, BB, Nokia, etc. can be paired with NFC tags which can be programmed by NFC apps or NFC tag encoder software to automate tasks. This action allows for a change of phone settings, a text to be created and sent, launch an app, or any number of commands to be executed, limited only by the tag program and other apps on the smartphone.
Based on the latest numbers from ComScore, 15.6% of Canadian smartphones are already NFC-enabled. Juniper Research suggests that 1 in 5 smartphones will have NFC by 2014.
