Samsung will have a new RFID chip coming to market soon that is is tailor made for the mobile market. The 6.5mm x 6.5mm chip will be able to interface with RFID tags built into various items like movie posters or tourist exhibits allowing services and products to be sold to you wherever you go.
“RFID chip reader systems allow consumers to pull context-specific information into their mobile devices while on the go”, says Dr. Chilhee Chung, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics System LSI division.
True enough, though privacy advocates may point out that the same RFID chip could be used to track you wherever you go whether you want it to or not. One the other hand this type of system may be able to pinpoint your wants and needs for better than the ham handed advertising that we currently suffer through.
