BenQ T80 exploits NFC features
What's NFC? That's what I wanted to know too when I heard BenQ T80 features, NFC stands for Near Field Communication. The devices that use NFC chipset can access and execute informations stored within equipments that support DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) technology. Those equipments such as home entertainment centre, smart refrigerator system, sensoric air conditioner, etc. can be contacted from this BenQ T80. But for now, this baby is only limited to access home security system & electronic transport ticketing; as explained by Barry Dai, manager of product business management team, BenQ Corporation. The features can be done thanks to NXP SmartMX chip, and applications that are stored into microSD card so you're able to swap it if you wish to change handsets. Take a look at photos from Slashphone at here.
Lucky people at Farglory Land Development housing project in Taiwan will be invited to test drive this T80 handset. The specs of T80 is still scarce at this moment, but we do know these: Quad Band network, WiFi, 2.2" screen & 3.0 Megapixels camera; no price disclosed yet so far. PC World has more indepth story here.
