With Google launching its Nexus S phone with NFC capabilities in December 2010 and reports circulating about Apple planning to incorporate this technology in its iPhone 5, it becomes important to explore what this technology has to offer and if we can do any thing to make sure that the apps we develop can make the best use of it. Session will cover details of technology, its current state and its impact on mobile application development, followed by a demonstration of how to build a NFC based TAG reading Android Application
