MD of RIM has said in the UK,”We’re going to deploy NFC in virtually all of our devices,”. This was clarified as being virtually all BlackBerry devices as well as tablets that are launched from now onwards.

NFC is the same technology that can be seen in smart travel cards, such as the Oystercard in London. It is also used to make contactless payments. By integrating NFC in to smartphones.

It allows the phone to essentially become an eWallet and contain card details, travel card details as well as potentially concert tickets etc.

The Nexus S is the only device that can use NFC on Android, but over the coming months and throughout this and the next years, expect NFC to take off and transform the way you pay for items in store.
