    1. In theory, yes, because it looks like Samsung Tectiles are just plain ordinary NFC tags. You could also save yourself a few gold coins by buying commodity NFC tags…

  1. Yea, but are we saying that with ICS the RAZR will have NFC enabled? That’d be the dream. I was thinking of upgrading to the S3 for the tiles/NFC support. -Ravi Shanghavi Ottawa

    1. I don’t think anyone knows the answer to that yet… there’s a trend towards including NFC hardware in phones but not making a big splash about it. I suspect all will become clear when Isis launches in the US, and suddenly a lot of folks will find that their phones have this amazing new feature they knew nothing about…

  2. Does your listing of Motorola RAZR include the MAXX version??? I would love to be able to access this technology and my phone has upgraded to ICS (without a glitch unlike many others apparently). The only problem I see at this point is that most retailers do not have the equipment needed to scan. A free app (Key Ring) would allow scanning of personal merchant cards (usually kept on a keyring for use at check out), but none of the retailers have the equipment to scan my phone screen as yet (notable exception is Starbuck’s).

  3. No, as far as we know the Maxx doesn’t have NFC. TBH I’m not totally sure about the original Droid Razr either.

    The only way to be absolutely sure is to take apart handsets and look at their internals, and that’s something that’s difficult to do economically.

    But don’t worry, even if your existing phone doesn’t have NFC your next one probably will. All that NFC hotness is coming to you eventually!
