Android 2.3.3 Adds NFC Capabilities to Developers

The world takes another baby step towards NFC ubiquity today, with the announcement of new NFC capabilities for Android developers with the 2.3.3 update. Devs will now have access to a "comprehensive" NFC reader/writer API that will allow their apps to read/write to "almost any" tag in existence.

Developers will also have access to new advanced intent dispatching. This gives the app much more choice in what to do when a tag comes in range. Also new is limited support for peer-to-peer connection with other NFC handsets.
