The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a number of cool features… particularly NFC. I have had the pleasure of using NFC via the Samsung display at an airport in Texas on a display that shows an ad with information on how to download a song using your NFC enabled phone.

Out of excitement of using my new Samsung phone and curiosity of the song that is available for download, I placed my Samsung phone on the display. Once my phone received the signal from the Samsung NFC tag in the display, I confirmed the connection and the mp3 began downloading immediately. It was very easy to do and in my opinion a very effective form of advertising for Samsung Galaxy S3.
