Low estimates show that by 2014 over 150 million mobile devices will be NFC capable. The driving force behind NFC is the public’s ever increasing dependence on, and demand for smart phone functionality. This trend provides many easy ways for businesses and consumers of mobile commerce to conduct all varieties of transactions using NFC integrated on mobile devices. The many benefits and potential uses of NFC technology will continue to drive the technology and push innovation in the application fields.
