A year is a short time in NFC

OPINION: It was a year ago this week that we began publishing Near Field Communications World. A year on, we’re sending out today’s newsletter to more than 8,000 people and our website has served visitors from over 150 countries around the world.

This time last year NFC was still very much a technology looking for a business model. And a lack of handsets meant that it was easy to conclude it might never see the commercial light of day.

Today, the lack of NFC handsets is still a serious issue. But, whilst the dominant business model for NFC is still evolving, it’s now clear there is a will to make it happen and that a viable model will be found.

It’s going to be very interesting to see what difference another year will make…
