The NFC Forum Monday approved the first few protocols and definitions of the specification this week. The first few protocols include a way for all NFC transactions to describe what data they have and what application it should be associated with. This way users will not have to choose an application for the exchange and will allow for seamless hands-free ticketing, payment and exchange of other data. The first data types approved for this protocol do not include the payments or ticketing that NFC is being heralded for. Instead they include text files, URLs, and content from smart advertising such as graphic ads or even customization extras like wallpapers and ringtones. Approval of the full specification will not be complete until late summer or early fall of this year.
