HP's mystery-wrapped Touch-to-share
functionality already does something very similar to Near Field Communication
, but it looks like the company's not satisfied with its own tech and will be jumping into the rapidly growing
field of companies embracing NFC
. A new job listing that has popped up online this week invites applications for the position of NFC Design Engineer on HP's tablet and smartphone team. Responsibilities include the design, testing, and debugging of NFC antennae and systems, but also expand to "support of product in field," indicating that HP is working on an aggressive roadmap here. Don't take our word for it, though, the job advert also advises prospective applicants that they'd have to work in a "high paced, schedule driven environment." Only question we have is this: since when are webOS devices being produced at a high pace?
