Is Any Cellphone Able to Receive Data from RFID Tags?

Posted By RFID Journal, 05.27.2014

Do any phones come with NFC technology? And can it read other types of tags?

Many mobile phones come with an embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) reader. NFC is a short-range form of radio frequency identification, designed for small financial transactions and communication between devices (it enables the rapid pairing of Bluetooth-enabled devices, for example). A cell phone equipped with an NFC reader can read NFC tags. It can't read other types of RFID tags, however, such as low-frequency (LF) or ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags.
