Some of the first NFC capable appliations for Google's Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system are appearing on the market. The Android Market on the Google Nexus S now offers two: Enable Table NFC and Taglet NFC. Taglet is a Japanese language application for transferring data, while the English language Enable Table can be used to earn "welcome back" coupons at the end of a meal by tapping the phone onto the check holder's NFC tag. You can find these two apps by searching on "NFC" in the Android Market on compatible devices.
