Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

Z10 and Q10 use nfc chips from Inside Secure, like the BB7 phones?

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

They both have NFC, but I do not have more info.

Can you explain why this focus on "Inside secure" ? Is it weak or on the contrary good?

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

I Just want to know about nfc details, the mifare classic tag support.

I could ask; Do the BlackBerry 10 phones support nfc's proprietary mifare classic tags?

(I know, people better buy a NFC-Forum standardized tag type.)

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

I don't know, you probably know far more than me about NFC.

If you are a developer, check this link from end of 2011:

are you a developer ?

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

I admin a website about nfc phones and have written a page with 1001 things about nfc tags. Now it's time to add something about the BlackBerry 10 handsets.

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

O.k., Anyway thanks for your time Robbie.

 

I think, BlackBerry (and other) customers better buy a NFC-Forum standardized tag type.

But,  without wanting to break rules or know BlackBerry's secrets, do the BlackBerry 10 phones support nxp's proprietary mifare classic tags?

More and more people are interested in nfc and looking for tags, I don't sell them :Winkiss: .

 

(sorry for the typo yesterday; it's not nfc's, but nxp's proprietary)

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

BlackBerry 7 and BlackBerry 10 don't support Mifare Classic, preferring to go for non-propreitary standards.

 

(Plenty of other Mifare tags that we do support though!)

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

This list (for BlackBerry 7) pretty match matches BlackBerry 10, 

 

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/34480/Near_Field_Communication_1631111_11.jsp

 

I don't think that it's definitive though.

Re: Inside Secure NFC controller chip?

No more questions, thanks for the answer.

 

BlackBerry users don't need a list.

Just remember, not the classic type (Tectiles are the classic type!).

Practically all other tags are ok. New NTAG tags with a "big" memory were announced already.
