The near field communication (NFC) technology has been around for quite some time but the technology hasn’t gained much traction so far. However, Samsung seems to be putting its weight behind the technology to make it more popular and commonplace. Now, the company has introduced special TecTiles programmable tags which may make NFC more popular with the vendors.


These TechTiles programmable tags will be able to work on NFC-enabled Android devices with the help of a new mobile application. The tag can be programmed by the vendors so that they can then accomplish up to 25 tasks. These tasks can help the users accomplish a whole host of new things through their devices, such as making a phone call, joining a Wi-Fi network and more.

If a user has an NFC-enabled device, he can simply tap the back his device against a TecTile tag to do tasks such as checking-in at a location or opening up maps or to simply ‘like’ something across the social networks.

The best thing about these tags are that they are very affordable, coming to four major U.S. vendors at a token price of $14.99 for a pack containing five of these tags. With the purchase of these tags, users can also download the free TecTile app from Google Play which will then work with these tags.

Despite a mild response to NFC technology, Samsung seems very hopeful about its future. According to Vice President of Product Planning at Samsung, “Everything has to start somewhere. We’re trying to teach the market to enable some of these behaviors in the future.”

The tags will work with not only Samsung devices but also with Android phones from a number of other vendors. The Samsung devices which will support the tags include:

  • Samsung S 4G on Sprint
  • Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, Spring and GSM Unlocked
  • Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G on T-Mobile
  • Samsung Galaxy S III with AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon and Sprint
  • Nexus S 4G on Sprint
