    Do you have Smart Tags app on your BB (Home Screen >Application)?

    If so, and if you find a NFC tag that is already programmed with some link/etc (Smart Poster), then you can tap the tag, Smart Tags pops up asking you if you want to be directed to the link that has been programmed on the tag.
    Remember that your BB can't read a tag if NFC is turned off (in Manage Connections), the backlight is off, or if your BB is locked.

    NFC is just a fancy thing...
    with no practical use at least for now...
    imagine someone with android (a security joke) smart phone having NFC, and trying to buy coffee.
    I think practical usage of NFC for good will take some more time.
    ...
    so till then....
    play with scanning tags for fun.....

    That is called BlackBerry Tags.
    Yes, it is working, but you need to send files to another BlackBerry with BB Tags (OS 7.1)

    When NFC payment gets activated by a bank/credit card company, then NFC becomes even more interesting.

    Currently this is how users user NFC on 99xx, 9790, 9350, 9360, 9370, 9380:
