Medford, OR, (AllPayNews)-- Mobifyer, a Division of Merchant360, Inc. and leading enabler of contactless, RFID, and Near Field Communication solutions announced today the release of a Near Field Communication (NFC) development kit for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Android developers have been exposed to new NFC technology in Gingerbread with the Samsung Nexus S phone but no real way to test and grow their developments. “We are in the business of increasing the adoption and acceptance of NFC so with the release of this mainstream phone we developed some reference applications and since we supply mobile contactless tags to companies like MoneyCell and applications for companies like Bling Nation we decided to release this as a solution allowing any Android developer to get engaged with NFC technology and increase adoption,” said Steve McRae, CEO of Merchant360, Inc.
The development kits, which can be purchased at www.mobifyer.com, feature Mobifyer mobile contactless tags that are custom encoded by the purchaser online (Starter Kit is only $15 USD) and when a program is ready to launch Mobifyer supplies custom designed, printed, and encoded contactless tags, wristbands, key fobs and cards.
