NFC Revolution News: BlackBerry OS7 update brings more NFC functions

Today BlackBerry released news about it’s new „Tag“ called functionality. Tag is a software update for the newest generation of the BlackBerry OS 7. In the moment it will run on the NFC equipped models Bold 9900/9930 and Curve 9350/9360/9370. The new functionality will enable “tap to share” to exchange multimedia content and contact information. So BlackBerry users that have NFC enabled phones can exchange photos, files and contact info easily by just holding their phones closely together. Also the API for Tag will be released to developers soon, to foster the development of Tag enabled applications. It seems that after the disappointing release of the iPhone 4s without NFC BlackBerry now really gives full throttle. We’ll keep you updated!
