There is a lot of noise/rumors about Apple and NFC after Apple’s hiring of NFC expert sparks digital wallet rumors.
NFC is one of those technologies that I have written quite a bit about (see my NFC/Touch page) and that I believe will change how people use their handsets. Unfortunately it has taken forever to hit the mass market; blame the operators…
And as I’ve previously written, I’ll say it again in 2010 — Even though Nokia was first in understanding the power of proximity and had introduced some of the first handsets, it is the iPhone what will drive the NFC revolution…
