BlackBerry in Near Field Communication #nfc #crackberry

leave a comment »

Research In Motion launched new BlackBerry Near Field Communication – NFC – enabled devices recently: the Bold 9790; Bold 9900; Curve 9360; and announced the Curve 9380. All of the devices run the new BlackBerry 7 OS. RIM is ahead of most of the field in this regard, although in most markets it’s so far ahead there’s little you can use the technology for.

RIM has recently been setting up pilots in India, Spain and Brasil. And the RIM bosses are adamant you’ll see payments take off very soon.

NFC replaces cash by 2016

leave a comment »

A report by Forrester and PayPal predicts that payments using mobile phones will replace cash by 2016, ABI Research predicts that Google’s step into Near Field Communication – NFC – with their recent launch of Google Wallet will drive adoption by the end of 2012, with global adoption in 2014, far sooner than the 2016 predicted by Forrester and PayPal. They also predict that the NFC chip would store the “user’s banking and personal details – making it redundant to carry ID cards, cash or credit cards.”

With Acer Inc, better known for it’s laptops, planning to launch a NFC enabled phone next year, and Apple rumoured to be launching NFC capabilities in their iPhone5, I can really see that happening. Andy Lees, president of Windows Phone, said at the AsiaD conference last month that consumers can expect NFC-equipped iPhones and Windows Phone 7 devices in 2012.

Added to that the recent announcement 45 globally operating mobile phone operators pledging their support for the GSMA NFC implementation, including China Mobile, Vodafone Group, América Móvil, Telefónica Group, China Unicom, Axiata, Bharti Airtel, Deutsche Telekom, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T.

Near Field Communication in iPhone5 #nfc

leave a comment »

Apple has been rumoured to be considering the integration of Near Field Communication technology for some time, there were rumours that the iPhone 4S would contain it and now there are rumours that the iPhone5 will contain an NFC Chip coming from handset manufacturers in Asia.

Google recently launched it’s own electronic payment application Google Wallet linked to its mobile platform Android. Research In Motion – maker of the BlackBerry –  has unveiled three new BlackBerry smartphones with the Blackberry 7 OS which support NFC. All behind Nokia who was one of the first to launch a NFC enabled phone.

And it is likely we will see iWallet for iPhone5 coming from Apple soon.

6 Months of Security Links #2011

leave a comment »

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

Mobile Monday #19 – Mobile Stories (cont.) #MoMoAms

with 2 comments

Mobile Monday Logo

Part 1 of Mobile Monday can be found here.

Initially Ben van der Burg‘s presentation using DiskSlideJockey failed, so Ville Versterinen presented ShadowCities, which I discuss here. Ben’s discussion centered on the disappearance of Story Telling, and the creation of Emotelling and the pornofication of the story. Lastly Ben Scott-Robinson of We Love Mobile proposed the exact opposite and discussed how important story and narrative are to getting your message accross.
