Android developers have released yet another update to the Android Gingerbread OS, which adds more NFC based features for developers to experiment and work with. The new version number is 2.3.3, and although it is only a minor update from the previous 2.3.2 version, it adds a lot of new features for phones with NFC hardware. The Google Nexus S then, will definitely get this update quite soon.

This new Android build will enable developers to write to tags and create easier peer-to-peer connections. The API also adds new applications that could be used for ticketing, providing ratings and bill payments, check-ins, advertising and sharing of data with other NFC capable devices.
