      Super cool NFC (Near Field Communication)

      I recently purchased a NOKIA 808 as a second phone mainly for taking pictures.Then I came to know that ,it is enabled with NFC. Even though I have heard about the same ,I thought it was just a gimmick.Since nokia gave demo NFC card, I tried it,and then only I came to know about the possibilities.On touching the back of phone on the card will trigger a "tong" sound and a NFC video demo will be played.

      Got interested ,did some googling and came to know that most of the android , windows phone and high end nokia symbian phones have NFC, except for iPhone( including iPhone 5- thats too bad,Apple )

      Nokia and sony are marketing some cool NFC accessories too.

      Then I came across NFC tags.On searching ebay ,there are sellers too.Got a pair of NFC tags today.Programmed with free NOKIA TAG WRITER software.(similar once are available for android too)
      I have programmed one NFC tag in such a way that on taping it,will pair with my JABRA head set.
      Seeing this ,I thought the immense possibilities of NFC and hence sharing here.
      some pics.
      Nokias NFC card,
      NFC tags from ebay
      and one NFC tag attached to my JABRA headset.
      and the process of just tapping on the tag and connecting to Headset.(saved 2 to 3 steps)

      Please share your NFC experiences and experiments too.

      I was impressed with NFC ( usefull for lazy people like me ) put a tag in car and the moment you touch it, turn on silent + turn on bluetooth + start playing songs.

      Had ordered from Amazon (link in the previous post) and paid some 30$ for 20 tags and 4 Keychains. Now, the difficult decision of where and how to use these
      I have already found a limitation wherein, the phone is detecting the NFC tag only if it is in unlocked state. So every time you are near a tag, you need to unlock first and then swipe. Have to figure out if I can override this.
      Edit: Just installed the NFC Task Launcher app and started programming the tags. It is super easy.

      Can someone suggest from where we can get NFC tags in India for Nexus 5 ? I am looking for something that I can hang in the rear mirror of the car instead of sticking the NFC Tag.

      I suggest you see if some seller from ebay US will ship to India. Have hardly seen any for sale here.
      The tags are not specific to a devise. You can pick any that you can lay your hands on. For hanging, you can go for the key chain shown in the pic I had posted above.
