I had the chance to play with the Samsung SGH-X700N, one of Samsung's NFC
mobile phones. The hardware is OK not as crappy as the Motorola L7.
The software part is rather sad since there is no NFC support in the basic
phone applications this seems to be something only Nokia manages to do. The
only piece of NFC software I found was a simple demo application. Sadly the
demo application could not read my NDEF formated Mifare tags. The demo app
shows an access error so I guess they haven't implemented NDEF and therefore
they don't know the NDEF Mifare-keys.
I haven't bothered looking at their SDK.
I gladly borrow NFC phones from anybody (and any company who is not afraid about honest reviews).
