Canadian mobile phone manufacturer Research In Motion has announced BlackBerry Tag will soon be available on their NFC enabled devices, which allows for contact and multimedia exchange between handsets and by just tapping them together.
RIM’s Co-CEO Jim Balsillie unveiled the news at the GITEX conference in Dubai, as a new way for BlackBerry smartphone owners to connect with one another and share content.
This ‘tag’ feature allows users to share contact information, documents, URLs, photos and other multimedia content by simply tapping their BlackBerry smartphones together.
BlackBerry Tag also enables friends to instantly add one another as contacts on BlackBerry Messenger, by the same methodology.
One Mobile Ring caught on video of late the usefulness of NFC with a Nokia 700 mobile phone and an NFC enabled Bluetooth speaker, where just tapping the phone on the audio device establishes an automatic Bluetooth audio connection – for the playback of music, which can be seen here.
