The Nokia N9 was announced a few days ago and it came with NFC support. NFC is a technology that’s capabilities are still very mysterious to a lot of us but one of the features was recently demoed in the video below.
Wireless file sharing was one feature Bluetooth had in the bag for years and now Nokia is using NFC to share files on the N9. This new way of sharing files is very similar to Bluetooth, however. It allows you to connect to another device and wirelessly send whatever you’d like to that device. Unlike Bluetooth though, this is an NFC service, so you have to be very close to each other and basically touch phones like if you were “bumping.”
This video is only 38 seconds long, but in that short time you get to see how Nokia implemented the service on the phone. Meego seems to integrate pretty well with the NFC transfer system and I like how the image was able to launch in the gallery app right away.
This new device will not be coming out until much later this year. Looking at features like this and the great UI Nokia put together with Meego, this might be one hit device.
