MWC 2012: ZTE launches Touch and Share for swapping content
ZTE has launched a Near Field Communication (NFC) system called Touch and Share, allowing consumers to swap content between devices using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Touch and Share-enabled devices connect instantaneously. Users choose which content to share then touch their device with another, which starts the process. Kan Yulan, VP and chief technical officer of ZTE's handset division said: 'ZTE Touch and Share is a combination of NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The core protocols we have incorporated into Touch and Share enable users to link up devices without the requirement to manually find and then make a connection – either smartphone-to-smartphone or smartphone-to-wireless Wi-Fi routers are possible.
'Users will enjoy the benefits of connecting quickly and easily – sharing contact information, images, video or even an internet connection, all by simply touching two Touch and Share-enabled devices together.'
The new service follows ZTE's January launch of the Turkcell branded T11, an Android device that allows motorists to pay at toll booths using NFC.
