NFC questions!!!!

by firsttimedan / May 7, 2013 3:34 PM PDT

Somehow this question pop up in my mind.
Samsung Galaxy S4 has NFC tech. and so does HTC One and Nokia Lumia 920 Windows.
I was wondering whether you can send photos, files from let's say the s4 to HTC or Windows phone via NFC
Can you bump 2 different phones together and share files via NFC???
I mean galaxy phones no problem but Samsung to HTC via Beam... with the "ping" sound effect.....
pls.. don bring up crapple

Thanks in advance for answering

In reply to: NFC questions!!!! won't be able to do a NFC connection between different phone manufacturers. Each manufacturer will use their own proprietary hardware/software.

......after speaking with a Samsung rep, I confirmed that communication between different manufacturers does work, assuming both devices have NFC installed. I needed to confirm or counter my earlier comment. Hope that is useful.
