Just have come upon an article saying that an endless combat between Google and Apple seems to get a new turn…
Both Google and Apple promised to add support for a Near Field Communications feature. And now all smartphone-toting users hold their breath and keep watch over news or rumors from the two technology giants.
Apple have been working on NFC iPhone feature for some time already resorting to help of Benjamin Vigier dealing with NFC technology and partnering with Gemalto, which is a Dutch security vendor engaged in the NFC market, as well.
Google, in its turn, decided to take the bull by the horns and this week Google chief executive Eric Schmidt announced a new release of Android OS with rather a tempting codename Gingerbread which primary feature will be a NFC support. A NFC capable Android is expected to be released in a few weeks, while Apple is still exploring and testing this function.
So NFC (Near Field Communications) may become soon a widespread and common term. This wireless communications technology enables users to link their credit cards to smartphones and complete banking transactions by waving their device over a special sensor. To put it simpler, the main thing about NFC is a possibility to buy things from your phone without any credit or debit card.
But even if NFC feature may be accepted as a reality, there are still some issues to be worked upon. It is still unknown whether general public will be receptive to the idea to hook up their credit cards to their smartphones.
The smartphones users got into a hot discussion focused mainly on security issue. They are afraid that phones with an access to Internet and wireless networks can easily be hacked. So at this time most users adhere to the opinion that they should wait and think twice before giving their devices an access to banking information.
It is evident that feature combat between Google and Apple still goes on and will be going on with a varied success. But all in all in case with NFC support the main question is not the timeliness but security of the solution that matters.
