BlackBerry and Near Field Communications (VIDEO)

Feature

[ YouTube link for mobile viewing ]

As you may have heard, earlier this week during the keynote at Mobile World Congress 2011, Research In Motion® (RIM®) co-CEO Jim Balsillie stated that some of the BlackBerry® smartphones released later this year will feature Near Field Communications (NFC). I was fortunate to catch up with Andrew Bocking, VP Handheld Software Product Management, right after his appearance on a MWC 2011 panel about NFC. In the above video, Andrew explains what NFC is, how it can be used and what this all means for BlackBerry smartphone users. Check it out!
