Here are some more NFC use cases:

Tap and Pay : Mary is visiting an outlet and buys some items. As she arrives at the 
counter, Mary chooses to pay with credit card, takes out her mobile phone and 
taps on the payment terminal with her phone. A screen show up on the phone 
asking her to confirm payment and enter PIN code. Once entered, Mary taps again
to confirm the transaction.

Tap and Travel, first example : John is on his way to the airport, in a taxi. En route, 
he connects to an airline site, and books a flight to London. Since the flight is within 
the next 2 hours, check-in is done automatically and an NFC boarding pass is directly 
sent to his phone. Using his favorite airline webapp, John can check his seat. 
At the airport, John board the plane directly by tapping his phone at the boarding

Tap and travel, second example : John is in London. He downloads the Transport For 
London application to buy a weekly transport pass. John then uses his phone to enter and
exit the public transport. At the end of the week, as the pass is about to expire, when
John uses his phone to enter the underground, the TFL web app prompts John to 
buy another ticket.

Hello everyone,

I have been working closely with the NFC group here at my company. Here are some use cases for thoughts:
- Tap and Play: I can tap my device with another device and start playing a Peer-to-peer game.
- Tap and Pay: I can tap my device with a commerce reader and pay
- Tap and Share: I can tap and share a piece of data, like coupons, contacts.
- Tap and Control: I can tap and control another device, like a TV remote
- Tap and Read: Read NFC tags.

Dom and I have checked and believe that we would need a charter
extension to publish working drafts for NFC. There is no problem
discussing use cases, and a charter extension is a straightforward
matter if current WG members agree.

So please do bring along your list of use cases!
