NFC Tag Differences Part Deux: Nexus 7 (2013)
I posted a while back about the differences in two NFC tags that I have. I've since got a Nexus 7 and started wanting to use some of my tags with it. I've ran into a few other differences. I was aware of the issue, but didn't think it mattered unless I was doing something wild. Apparently not.
The first tag is a Tags for Droid tag. In the second picture, a screen shot from my N7, there is an error: that tag type is not supported.
If you've read the other post, you can already see where this is going.
The second tag is from Tagstand (full disclosure: Tagstand sent me two free tags in a promo a while back - this had nothing to do with my blog, I just asked for them, like many others).
These tags are different and they work. They're also thinner.
Final word: the thick tags DO work on my Galaxy Nexus phone, so there still is a use. They're not bad, just not compatible with my Nexus 7.
