"It is fitting that the first NFC Forum-certified product has been released by Sony, a founding member of the NFC Forum," said Debbie Arnold, director of the NFC Forum. "For companies like Sony, our Certification Program provides not only increased assurance that their devices conform to NFC Forum specifications and will interoperate with other NFC Forum-certified devices, but also the confidence to deliver global solutions that perform as intended around the world."
"We are pleased that our RC-S380 reader has become the first NFC Forum-certified product, thanks to the full support of AT4 wireless, and are proud to bring the first NFC Forum certified device to the market. We believe the NFC Forum Certification Program offers great value to the industry. We will keep supporting this program." said Kazuyuki Sakamoto, General Manager of Sony FeliCa Business Division.
