NFC is Future RFID

NFC or Near Field Communications is an emerging technology aimed at close range communication of devices.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) provides one way communication, between an RFID Chip and its reader/radar. NFC goes a step further to make communication between mobile phones and computers.

NFC enabled mobile phone can double as a credit card. You can use your mobile phone to make payments at restaurants or grocery store. Just swipe your mobile phone to a NFC reader and the bill will be paid from your account.

You will also be able to pass MP3 files from your mobile phone to your friend’s laptop without any wired connection.

MasterCard, Visa, Nokia, Motorola and Microsoft are active in further enhancements of NFC technology.
