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.
