NFC between different devices

Is it possible to use NFC to transfer things between Z10s and other devices like Windows 8 or Android phones?  If so, is there any kind of table available that lists what kinds of things can and can't  be NFCed?

Re: NFC between different devices

I tried it yesterday with a Z10 and a Windows HTC phone.  It made the noise like it was going to work but then had a message about the them not being compatible.  i wasn't sure if it was just a configuration issue of if they just naturally can't communicate with each other.  I didn't want to waste my time trying to make something work that will never work.  I'll keep looking for documentation on NFC connectivity.

Re: NFC between different devices

There’s an issue whereby the Lumia P2P server crashes when used with BlackBerry 10.

BlackBerry engineers say that the problem is with the Lumia devices.

BlackBerry 10 P2P works fine with Android devices and other Nokia devices.

(I found this info a while back, probably in this BB support forum)
