Philips said Monday that Samsung Electronics will deploy cellular phones that include Philips' Near-Field Communications technology for short-range transmission of data.

NFC is sometimes seen as a competitor to Bluetooth, although the NFC technology is too slow and too short-range to do anything more than limited communication. However, its specifications -- 212 kilobits per second at distances of about eight inches -- have been seen by some as well suited for mobile point-of-sale communications. There's no danger of losing personal information, they argue, to a receiver across the room.

"We envision a world of secure universal commerce and connectivity in which consumers can access and pay for physical and digital services anywhere, at any time, using any device," said Mario Rivas, executive vice president, communications businesses, Philips Semiconductors, in a statement. "Philips is committed to bringing this vision of the ultimate connected consumer experience through NFC technology innovations and industry collaborations with market leaders such as Samsung."
