    How to Use S Beam? 

    When people talk about NFC, many of them may first think about mobile payments. But in fact, NFC can do much more than that. Samsung has given us two very impressive examples of what NFC can do beyond mobile payments — they are S Beam and TecTiles. This passage will mainly focus on S Beam.

    You may think that Samsung touts this feature, but if you try it, you’ll find it very useful. This one is rather simple:

    ■First make sure that both devices have the NFC and S Beam setting turned on.

    ■Open the content you want to share. You can share music, pictures, videos, contacts, web page links, even links to an application on Google Play Store. To share a link to an application, open the application and follow the steps below.

    ■Touch the devices together, back to back.


    ■On the device you are sending the content from, the screen will show Touch to beam. Touch the content on the screen to begin the beaming process.


    ■When prompted, separate the two devices and the content will begin to transfer.


    ■When the transfer is complete, the content will be shown on the receiving device’s screen.

    NOTE: Before the S Beam connection can be made, both devices must be active — they cannot be in the lock screen or screen off mode. When the device’s screen is locked or off, the NFC communication is turned off as part of the device’s security features.

    Of course you can always email files, but once you are familiar with sharing with S Beam, sending an email to a person sitting in the same room will feel silly.

    HP Released Various Products, All Come with NFC 

    HP-Elitebook-Revolve-NFC-rfid-blogHP has released the latest business tablet, which transforms “with a flick of the wrist” from an ultrathin notebook to a touch-enabled tablet, and with NFC functionality.

    The HP Elitebook Revolve’s touch screen pivots to let users share their work or revolves and folds to become a tablet. The Windows 8 device also offers enterprise class docking capabilities, a magnesium chassis and a Corning Gorilla Glass screen.

    The machine comes with what HP calls “secure NFC”, hinting that it may be able to handle more than simple pairing and sharing applications.

    The Elitebook Revolve is expected to become available in the US in March 2013, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.

    Earlier this year, HP launched an ultrathin hybrid laptop PC — the Envy x2, which comes with NFC functionality and features a detachable screen, enabling it to work as both a tablet and a notebook.

    “Customers no longer have to choose between a product that lets them create rich content and another that lets them enjoy entertainment on the go — they can have both in one device,” says HP.

    In addition, HP has also launched an all-in-one PC and a mouse, which are both NFC-enabled.
