    they are hoping big on NFC.
    file transfer [demo and working],
    auto BT initialization and authentication [demo and working, some part is implemented],
    Secure Mobile Payment [started in Turkey],
    Secure ID-Pass, etc
    ....
    very soon (or may be later, since lot third parties need to agree on this) you will see lot of piratical application of NFC.

    NFC has lots of use cases.

    Some of them are:

    - Payment (tap your mobile on point of sales terminals to pay),

    - Access Control (tap your mobile on the door reader to open the door, replacing your key or company badge),

    - Smart Poster (tap a NFC tag to see more info), Smart Tags app on the BB uses this mode.

    - BlackBerry Tag (Tap another device to send/receive data to/from another device),

    - Tap to launch (Tap a tag to launch a macro shortcut you have made: NFCShortcuts app: ).

    Yes, you need to have NFC on for most of the use cases. It doesn't turn on automatically.

    (Payment and Access Control can in theory be used without even have a battery in your mobile phone, as the secure chip can get its power from the Payment/Door readers).
