    I ordered some 1K tags for my Nexus 4. The vendor now has info on their site that the tags will not work with Nexus 4 or Nexus 10. Something about the Broadcom controller not supporting NXP legacy tags. Reply

    Well, that's kind of bad. Do you trust the vendor, or are you willing to buy a few tags just to find out? If the new stack and/or chip really marks a bifurcation of NFC it's something worth Anandtech looking into and explaining I think, especially if it goes beyond NFC tags into other NFC functions.

    Weird, really? Any chance you can link me to the tags?

    Isn't a "NFC NCI" the same as an "ATM Machine"? ;) Reply

    Or LCD display, which gets confused a lot even on anandtech.com :D. Reply

    NFC (Near Field Controller) NFC Controller Interface (NCI), I fail to see what's an ATM Machine there, it's the proper way of writing the sentence or referring to the NCI.

    I was simply pointing that, like when we talk about an ATM Machine (or an LCD Display), talking about an NFC NCI is redundant, since the N from NCI already stands for NFC. You could have written "The NFC Controller Interface (NCI) [...]". It's no biggie. Reply

    They are just pointing out that if you expand all of that you get:
    Near Field Controller Controller Interface

    The C in NFC stands for Communication, not Controller. So NFC NCI would be Near Field Communication Near Field Communication Controller Interface. Reply

    With the change of NFC code, might that complicate back porting this to existing devices? I assume since this interface is new, that it isn't in those phones/tablets. Reply

    " WebView rendering engine (which doesn’t apply to Chrome unfortunately)"

    Does Google ever plan on bringing Chrome on Android to the 21st century?

    I never thought I'd see an old MAW member on Anandtech. Small world, eh? Reply
