BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) announced yet another way BlackBerry smartphones will employ Near Field Communications (NFC) in the future to wirelessly share data with BlackBerry Tag and the service will allow BlackBerry smartphone owners with NFC-enabled devices to tap their handhelds together to share images, contact information, documents, website URLs and even add new BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) contacts via NFC. Those crackberries equipped with NFC (Bold 9900 / 9930 and Curve 9350 / 9360 / 9370) will get BlackBerry Tag and RIM is planning to open up the relevant APIs so developers can use the facility in any number of interesting ways, like bringing touch-to-share to the system…………………
During keynote presentation at the GITEX conference in Dubai, Research In Motion Co-CEO Jim Balsillie today unveiled a new way for BlackBerry smartphone users to connect with one another and share multimedia content. BlackBerry Tag, which will be incorporated in the next BlackBerry 7 OS update, will allow users to share contact information, documents, URLs, photos and other multimedia content by simply tapping their BlackBerry smartphones together. BlackBerry Tag will also enable friends to instantly add one another as contacts on BBM (BlackBerry Messenger). “BlackBerry Tag is an exciting and innovative feature that makes sharing contact information and multimedia content effortless and seamless,” said Jim Balsillie, Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry Tag opens a new dimension to the BlackBerry platform that is powerful, simple and intuitive and we think it will be welcomed by both users and developers.” BlackBerry Tag takes advantage of Near Field Communications (NFC) technology included in the recently launched BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and BlackBerry Curve 9350/9360/9370 smartphones and these are the first BlackBerry smartphones that will support BlackBerry Tag. RIM also announced plans to expose BlackBerry Tag through APIs on the BlackBerry platform, allowing software developers to take advantage of tap to share functionality from within their own applications.
