NFC Enabled Windows 8 Convertible laptops from HP: Specs and reviews

Near Field communication is an innovative technology used to transfer contents between NFC enabled devices. Read this post to get information on NFC enabled convertible laptops from HP.

Near Field communication (NFC) Technology:

NFC technology is being used by advanced smartphones for establishing connection between devices for sharing contacts, videos, web pages as well as apps. But now this communication technology is also available on many Windows 8 tablets and laptops. The technology is also called as Tap + Send because NFC is used for just establishing initial connection between NFC enabled gadgets with tapping them together and the remaining process is handled by Bluetooth or some other transferring means.
My last post covered some Windows 8 laptop and tablets with Replaceable battery and this time I am going to share specs, price and reviews for two NFC enabled convertible laptops from HP.
