Samsung developed single-chip RFID reader for cellphones
Samsung announced the development of their new single-chip RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reader for mobile devices such as phones. It is designed to provide the clients with product or service information from the RFID tags encored in various items like clothing, posters, tourist exhibits etc.

While the single-chip can be embedded into devices such as mobile handsets and hand-held readers used in retail stores, initially the major application for it is expected to be in card-type readers that plug into mobile handsets. This will allow immediate access to the new technology.
