SANTA CLARA, Calif. and TOKYO, Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — sMedio, a leading developer and provider of wireless content mobility solutions, today announced that it is partnering with NXP to optimize its WiFi data transfer, sync and media streaming software in support of NXP’s NFC drivers and chips. The partnership will result in the delivery of NFC-WiFi coupled content mobility solutions between enabled Windows 8 PCs and Android and other OS supported mobile devices.
“We are excited to partner with NXP, the global leader in NFC, to deliver a truly unique and compelling implementation of our content mobility software optimized for NFC,” said George Tang, vice president with sMedio. “Our NFC enabled content mobility solutions with NXP are extremely relevant, fully interoperable PC-Mobile offerings, which solve an immediate need and desire of users for wireless data access, mobility and streaming between devices.”
Tang continued, “Tap to transfer, tap to sync, and tap to stream provides an immediately gratifying user experience.
