    NFC type-v support on Lumia 820 and/or 920?

    I am currently developing an application on my Lumia 820. I thought that it would not be any problem for the phone to read NFC tags of type V (NFC-V ISO 15693). Now have i tried different other NFC reading applications, and i cannot get the phone to even notice the tags of this type. My Galaxy Nexus reads the tags like a charm.

    Why won't the phone read the tag? Is it a phone specific limitation or is it a limitation in WP8?

    You may or may not find some clues in this thread useful: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...indows-phone-8 (I am not familiar with NFC, so I can not decypher)

    Thank you, but i do not really get the information there. What i want to know if this is a platform(wp8) specific limitation or if it is a Nokia 820 specific one.

    I found this thread, and it is not very comforting: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/For...-29605876aa94/

    However the answers i get are not especially definitive, so i was hoping for some more in-depth answer to the NFC capabilities

    This wiki article may clarify your questions:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...indows_Phone_8

    In short, Windows Phone only supports Types 1 to 4 as far as I know.

    I would interpret Mark Chamberlain's statement in your link as "it should work but only using an NTAG" - and also seems to be supported by this statement: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...l=1#post908880

    Lastly, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...-8-application which again states "Windows Phone 8 only supports NDEF formatted tags you'll need to format them before you can read them in a Windows Phone 8 app."

    This sounds very much like a Windows Phone 8 and not a device specific issue - though you might need to ask Microsoft for final confirmation.

    It is a WP8 specific issue, not device specific. For a first approach to NFC its not that bad but there are somethings that are lacking like the impossibility to format a TAG or to write lock it.
