    I'm wondering if NFC works over the Android runtime? Anyone given it a shot? One of my laptops has an NFC chip on it which allows an Android device to transfer data via NFC, and the Z10 seems to recognize it as the screen "blinks" when I tap the phone to it with NFC on with the Android sharing app opened. However, nothing happens. I'm wondering if there might ever be support for the Z10's Android runtime to be able to use NFC, or is it already enabled on it?

    Currently, there is no support for NFC in the Android Runtime:

    Hardware Features - Jelly Bean Runtime for Android apps - BlackBerry Developer

    Hardware Features - Gingerbread Runtime for Android apps - BlackBerry Developer

    Thanks. Fingers crossed it will be something developed in the future (but with the way NFC has going...)

    You're welcome! I believe NFC is here to stay - hope will see it added to the Android Runtime.
