BB model suggestion for NFC development

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

I am new to BB and also BB development. I am starting a prototype project that has access control and mobile payment. I heard that BB supports nfc card emulation. To start, I am going to buy a BB for development purposes. Which BB model do you suggest? Is the NFC chip model the same in the NFC supported BB models? If the model does not matter, I am willing to buy a Q10. Thank you.

On the NCF world website, you can see that both the Q10 and Z10 support NCF, as well as the Playbook, Curve 9350/60/70/80, and Bold 9790/9900/9903. Look into Blackberry's NFC page as well.

The PlayBook does not have NFC
