Much hoopla has been made over the magical synergistic qualities of NFC, from payment options to data transfer on Google’s Android 4.0 ICS. ZigBee might be new to most people, but it’s basically a much more advanced and efficient wireless network than anything currently in place, using a whole lot less battery than the traditionally used WiFi. TazTag, a French wireless tech manufacturer, has announced that they are going to be unveiling the TPH-ONE, the very first phone to have both of these technologies built in.
The company hopes that the new device will be an example of the capabilities of both NFC and ZigBee. The TPH-ONE will be available in March for demos, and is available now for pre-order with a set delivery for April.
With that being said, is anyone interested in the TazTag? Where do you see NFC going in the future? Drop a comment below! The full press release can be found after the break.
