NFC Technology On The Great Google Nexus S Explained

 NFC stands for Near Field Communication, and it basically a new type of secure wireless technology.  The Nexus S houses inside it a chip that holds all manner of credit and debit card information.  

The new Nexus S mobile handset from Google is one of those rare models that you can define as truly groundbreaking, thanks to its incorporation of NFC technology, the first mobile handset to do so.  This phone is however more than a one trick pony, and a bevy of other features and facilities make it about the most complete smartphone currently available.
So exactly what is NFC, and how will it benefit the everyday phone user?  NFC stands for Near Field Communication, and it basically a new type of secure wireless technology.  The Nexus S houses inside it a chip that holds all manner of credit and debit card information.  Shops and outlets that use this technology will have a scanning device which you will pass your phone in front of.  NFC  works at distances of up to 4inches, so it is the perfect technology for this use.  If the range was any further then there would be a danger of your phone being accessed by accident, whereas at this distance any possibility of this is removed.  You would then need to confirm your details on the handset itself, rather like you do on current chip and pin systems.s  The advantages of a system such as this are obvious, if it becomes a success, there would be no need to carry money or a wallet or purse around with you, your phone would be all that you need.  Security wise the idea has its benefits too, although your phone could be taken, a handset is much easier to trace than a credit card, and would need to be active in order to use.   Anybody who has obtained a mobile phone through improper means would normally either switch the phone off or replace the sim, which in either instance would make the NFC facilities useless.
To start with, the Google Nexus S would be the perfect tool for not only making calls and accessing the net, but also for making small purchases.  To start with, transactions carried out via this method of payment are limited to just £15, meaning you could easily order your Coffee and Muffin or purchase the morning paper, but you are not going to buy a new television or car just yet, but certainly once the system establishes itself, the possibilities are endless.  Network provider Orange have also vowed to release a range of smartphones that support this method of payment, whilst Android are also ensuring that its Gingerbread version of the popular operating system will also enable this facility.  The handset also features plenty that impresses from the word go, with a high quality screen joining some excellent multi media features that include a 5 mega pixel camera and HD video capture.
The NFC elements of this phone certainly make it about as future proofed as a mobile handset can be, and the prospect of leaving your house carrying just your mobile phone is no longer fantasyFeature Articles, but very much a reality thanks to models such as this.
