Regarding NFC Functionality, is this a Sign of Things to Come?
NFC has been a bit of a buzz word this year. Unfortunately, we still have yet to see it catch on in the mainstream arena due to several different reasons. However, now things are starting to accelerate a bit, and Samsung seems to be attempting to be a catalyst for that progress. In London’s Stratford Holiday Inn, 40 rooms have been equipped to allow the Galaxy S3 to be used as a room key. By utilizing the NFC capability of the Galaxy S3, users need only tap their phone against the terminal on the door to gain entry to their room. Hopefully this is just the beginning, and is a sign of things to soon come involving NFC. I personally would love to not have to keep up with a hotel key, and instead get into my room with just a tap of the phone.
