    Google gets NFC P2P patent

    News in brief

    Google has been granted a patent for transferring application state information from one device to another via NFC, a system which is similar to the company’s Android Beam service. The patent outlines methods to allow a user to switch from one device to another while continuing to work with the same application or content. “It is easy to read email from a smart phone but difficult to reply due to the size limitations on the phone keyboard,” explains the application. “A user may start a draft of a message on a phone, but prefer to finish the draft using a tablet.”
