The NFC Forum tomorrow will hold a press conference to announce new details of a near-field communications (NFC) certification program at Cartes 2010 in Paris.
According to a press release, the new program will give device manufacturers a means of establishing their products’ compliance with the NFC Forum’s technical specifications.
The new standards and certification will allow OEMs to display the N-Mark, the universal symbol for NFC, which tells consumers where to touch to initiate NFC services on a device. The new specifications further define the modular architecture and interoperability parameters for NFC devices and protocols.
The new standards come as Samsung and Google roll out the Nexus S, an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) phone that supports NFC.
