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.
