Samsung joins NFC

Royal Philips Electronics and Samsung announced today that Samsung would be manufacturing mobile handsets with Near Field Communications (NFC) support.

"Consumers will first see NFC technology appear in their most commonly utilized personal device the mobile phone. With NFC, the mobile phone transitions from running primarily voice applications to becoming a more personalized device that can let you conduct secure payment transactions, gain access to public transportation, building access and store digital rights. In essence, the mobile phone becomes a point-of-sale terminal, a ticket counter, keys to your building, a transport card, a debit/credit card and an electronic business card all in one easy to use device."
