French NFC specialist TazTag is to unveil an NFC-enabled Android tablet at Cebit 2011 in Hannover, Germany this week.

The TazPad comes with a 7-inch color screen with multitouch as well as full HD output via HDMI. The device connects via WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and ZigBee and has a camera, GPS, an accelerometer and a biometric authentication option.

The tablet is aimed at the B2B market and TazTag sees particular potential for the device in the retail sector.

“After biometric authentication on the TazPad, a vendor may provide specific information on products, read his client’s loyalty card ([from a] card or NFC phone), book orders on site and even register a secure payment,” says the company.

“The TazPad without the biometric option can also be used at aisle end displays or store windows to inform a customer about a product presented to the tablet, to compare products, or to retrieve a promotional coupon using their NFC phone,” TazTag explains.
