Broadcom Sees NFC Technology as Revenue Key

NFC is a way to swap data wirelessly, allowing mobile phones to pay for goods, store e-tickets or swap photos and business cards.
“We think it's going to be a very big deal,” Michael Hurlston, senior vice president for Broadcom's wireless LAN business, told Reuters in an interview at the Computex PC show in Taipei.
