NFC FOR ALL?

Although I don't use the NFC function of my phone I REALLY LIKE IT. It annoys me that a/. it might not actually work, and b/. there's practically no sign of it being used in a way I can take advantage of it in any meaningful way in the UK.
The technology is only in a handful of phones, however, and although it's becoming more prominent, it'll be a while until it's really mainstream.
Moneto are looking to address this, however, and have created a system whereby the NFC technology is built into an SD card. This means that anyone who has a MicroSD card slot in their phone should be able to use NFC.
Granted, you have to use the accompanying Moneto app, and it therefore has limited use, but it's a start, right? Further details can be found on the original Android Police blog post.
