Samsung unveiled a new version of its NFC tag that can sing along the hot-new Galaxy S4. Just like that was the case with the original TecTile, this one also allows you to program specific commands when the phone touches the tag. Here’s the official pitch:
Samsung is introducing TecTile 2, an update to the original TecTile NFC programmable tags, which will be available in the coming weeks. TecTile 2 will use the current NFC technology on the market, allowing Samsung customers to further incorporate NFC into their daily lives and to use with the latest Samsung Mobile products and services, including the Galaxy S 4.
As industry standards continue to evolve, Samsung remains committed to meeting those standards and adapting its technologies if necessary. Samsung customers can also fully utilize TecTiles 2 with existing Samsung Mobile NFC-enabled Android smartphones currently in market.
NFC tags are still not widely used but we’re expecting this market to boom in the years to come, eventually making everyday mundane tasks a snap…
