Features of the Nexus S Mobile Phone
Near Field Communication technology is very similar to the RFID technology where you can share high frequency wireless data within a limited range. NFC limits the data sharing to around 4 inches, according to Wikipedia.org. RFID typically travels for farther distances. The NFC technology is one of the new features being implemented in Google’s Android 2.3 release. The NFC technology will very likely be using cell phones as a way to pay for your goods. You won’t need to take out a credit card instead you hold the phone close to the payment terminal and click a button to make a payment.
