NFC Coming at You: Shouts From the San Francisco Summit
Panelists from the Smart Card Alliance NFC Solutions Summit 2012 on Tuesday pulled themselves away from the speaker stands at a San Francisco Airport hotel meeting room and held a telephone press conference intended to get across one message: near field communications is happening. now, and probably it is coming to a phone near you.
James Anderson, a MasterCard senior vice president, indicated that as far as NFC went, the 2011 milestone was the rollout by Google of its NFC smartphone. That added the credibility of a technology behemoth.
