Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimeters. Present and anticipated applications include contactless transactions, data exchange, and simplified setup of more complex communications such as Wi-Fi.<ref name=WhatIsNFC>Template:Cite web</ref> Communication is also possible between an NFC device and an unpowered NFC chip, called a "tag".
