SmartphoneIt is anticipated that the number of NFC Enabled Android smartphone shipments will hit 1.2 billion by the year 2018 Coupled with Apple's recent confirmation that NFC will be enabled on devices including the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, that adds up to a huge share of handsets around the world which possess an NFC function.

NFC is increasingly a crucial tool for businesses, supporting their activities from operations to marketing and sales. So with the rapidly growing number of handsets becoming enabled with NFC, we've put together a comprehensive NFC Enabled device search table to ensure our customers can easily reference which smartphones are equipped with the Contactless technology.

Informing business decisions

Our NFC Enabled device search table allows you to see if your device is enabled and can be used with the NFC project you are working on or carry the NFC app you have developed. You might also use the table to help you decide which smartphone to buy if Contactless NFC technology is a prerequisite.

Easy as NFC

Like any effective directory, our NFC Enabled device search table is designed for quick and easy reference. Simply search the table by manufacturer, with brands listed from A to Z. In the column next to each smartphone manufacturer, you will find the brand name, allowing you to see the specific model you are searching for, next to the operating system the handset uses - from iOS to Android, BlackBerry and Windows.

Alternatively, you can allow us to do the searching - utilise the search box at the top of the table and be directed to the handset you are looking for, providing it is NFC Enabled.

An NFC Enabled world

NFC technology has quickly become the rule, rather than the exception to it, as millions of people all over the world use handsets which possess the technology. This has opened up huge avenues of potential when it comes to B2C marketing and sales drives, and also allows businesses to enhance the efficiency of their operations.

According to Statista, by 2018 there will be a total of 1.9 billion NFC enabled smartphones around the world, increasing from 1.4 billion by the end of this year. You will be able to keep up with which devices offer NFC thanks to the NFC Direct enabled device search table. We will also be adding a 'Wearables' table over the coming months, in response to the growing number of NFC Enabled time pieces and jewellery.
