TPH-ONE: First Android phone to offer NFC and Zigbee

“The TPH-One is more than just a new NFC phone,” says Taztag. The combination of NFC and Zigbee, as well as support for a SIM-based or embedded secure element, opens up a wide range of potential new use cases for the device, says the firm. “The TPH-One possibilities are endless and the only limit is the creativity of solution providers to propose new services.”

Samples of the new device will be available in March and volume pre-orders for delivery in April are now being taken.
