RFID in phones


I’ve been interested in RFID for along time now as it presents amazing possbilities both good and bad once some of its problems are sorted out (such as IDing alot of goods at once, range, personal rights issues) and there are some interesting developments going on particularly in the retail space.

Well things are set to get more interesting with RFID being put into phones, such as the Nokia prototype being beta tested by Mook that shows off what a difference it can make to usability.

Imagine wanting to phone an entry in a phone book – just swipe, or on the back of a cornflakes box, or SMSing to a competition, storing numbers of business cards or sales material in the streets.
