Kinda, but nfc itself is very slow, and only designed for small transfers, like sending a contact or something.

Nfc is good for sharing settings, so two phones can communicate wifi direct settings to each other with nfc, and use wifi to send the actual data. I believe this is how Android Beam works, but I've yet to try it myself, so don't quote me on that.

I might be wrong but is Android Beam not ICS only? In which case you'll have to wait for the update.

Good catch, sir.

As you can tell, I haven't used it. But playing with those nfc tags is rather fun :-)

All over Amazon as well. Not tried them yet but you need to make sure you get large capacity ones for anything more than the odd switch action.

Kind of a noobish question, but is payment actually possible via NFC on the OSD atm?? And if so, does it have to be through Google Wallet??

It would depend on the seller having an NFC capable checkout, I have no idea how many(or if any) exist. Do you not link your DC or CC details to the phone for payments?

I've seen a fair number of NFC checkouts in my area, so that shouldn't really be a problem... As for card details, I have absolutely no idea :P

Edit: Done a bit of research on the mastercard site, and apparently you do just download the card payment details onto your phone

Google Wallet needs one of the patched apks but unless you are in the USA it's pretty much useless. Orange have their own NFC payments called Quicktap which is on the Orange ICS ROM. You need a special quicktap SIM to use this though which you can get by calling Orange up. There is no cost. Once you have the new SIM and set up the app you can add any UK debit card or any Barclays card including Barclaycard.

tags 've been considering buying some Nfc tags to put my OSD into various modes, eg bedtime, Car etc.
Can anyone recommend a particular brand? Ebay seems to be filled with either Sony Or mifare tags, although the ones in the image attached look quite funky.

Also, is there a particular app anyone recommends for doing the above? Attached File  Screenshot_2012-12-09-07-03-30.png   221.46KB   21 downloads

Not tried NFC yet myself but I do believe you need the "higher" capacity ones. The lower capacity ones only allow a couple of commands before running out of space.

Does nfc use much battery? I'm considering using it to automatically turn blue tooth on when the phone goes in the car cradle, but if it uses more battery than blue tooth then no point really is there?

It's not going to cost you anything to find out one way or another anyway. Go for it.
