Google-owned device maker into contactless space.
For all the excitement around NFC, handset support remains quite limited. Samsung's top end phones embed the tech, as do some RIM, LG, HTC and Nokia Symbian phones.
But it's hardly mainstream.
Now, it looks as if Moto is ready to release a compatible handset. About time, given that it's owned by Google, which needs more support for its Google Wallet NFC commerce service.
Sprint announced the slide-out QWERTY phone last week, without giving a release date or an indication of whether it would support Google Wallet.
Despite its slow start, NFC looks set to accelerate from this year. Berg Insight claimed 30m devices shipped in 2011, but that sales will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 87.8 per cent to 2016, when 700m could be sold.
