Industry outlook

We note that the appointment should also be supportive of Thinfilm’s initiative to have its proprietary Tag-Talks-First (TTF) protocol included as part of the main NFC standard. We see this as a key step in getting Apple phones to support TTF protocol. In contrast, Android-based phones have supported TTF protocol for several years.
