Sony Xperia Smart Tags: NFC tags meet Sony styling

While NFC Tags have been around for a while, they haven’t captured the attention of mainstream consumers thanks to the fact that the majority of phones released haven’t supported NFC technology and the tags themselves haven’t been widely availability.

The latter however has now changed, with NFC Tags being inexpensive and easy to pick up online. Couple this with the fact that 2011 will be the year of the NFC enabled smartphone and it’s perfectly understandable as to why Sony are mainstreaming these critters in the form of an attractive shiny disc for your NFC delight.

While announced earlier this month, this is the first video demo we’ve seen of these tags in action so click through and watch for a window into a certain NFC enabled gent’s life to see just how functional these pretty discs can be:

Pricing should be between £8-15 with a Q1 2012 release expected. If you’re wondering how to programme one of these tags, jump across to this great article on written last April outlining the process of doing so using a Samsung Nexus S.
