Sony Xperia Ion & NFC Smart Tags
The Sony Xperia Ion is the latest 4G smartphone from Sony. It is a phone with a nice camera and a brilliant screen.

One of the coolest things about the Ion is the Near Field Communication Capabilities that are built in. Sony has made using this new technology easy with Smart Tags.

These small NFC chips, which are about the size of a quarter and very light, let you get the most from your phone by programming them to tell your phone to do certain actions.

These chips come pre-programmed for regular tasks for they can be re-programmed to do whatever you want your phone to do.

For example one tag is programmed for use in the car; it turns on navigation, Bluetooth and GPS when it comes in contact with your phone.

Another tag is set for the office and automatically turns on wi-fi, bluetooth and opens your calendar.

Smart Actions is intuitive. It learns how you interact with your phone and makes suggestions for rules that keep you in control of your day. Of course, you know yourself best, so you can always create rules from scratch, or customize the suggestions that come your way.
