Microsoft has filed a U.S. patent for a logo that marks a device as NFC-enabled, according to NFC World.
The “Tap and Do” logo (pictured, courtesy of NFC World) will be included on computers and other hardware that feature NFC connectivity, as well as on NFC-enabled computer software.
The announcement makes good on Microsoft’s promise earlier this year that it would require all NFC-enabled PC’s and tablets running on its latest Windows 8 operating system to contain an NFC insignia.
For further details of Microsoft’s use of the “Tap and Do” slogan and insignia, as well as other plans for NFC technology on the Windows 8 platform, check out the Windows 8 Near Field Proximity Implementation Specification available on the company’s website.
