This paper discusses NFC technique on MeeGo Harmattan. First of all, it introduces the definition of NFC, NFC communication modes and operating modes, NFC working principle, NFC-related specification, and NFC Forum standards. Second it presents NFC architecture on MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan, including the introduction to MeeGo Harmattan, NFC architecture, and NFC applications types. Third, it dwells on QtMobility NFC API on MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan; especially expatiate on the usage of Generic NFC classes, NFC classes used in tag access, NFC classes for Peer-to-Peer communication and Connectivity QML plugin of QtMobility which provides some QML NFC elements in detail. After that it explains how to take advantage of NFC to deliver innovative apps Apps on MeeGo Harmattan. In the end, it discusses the current problems of NFC technique on MeeGo Harmattan, and looks forward to the future development of NFC apps on MeeGo Harmattan.
