Asus Reveals the NFC Express USB 3.0 NFC Receiver

Asus has announced the arrival of a USB 3.0 based NFC receiver, which allows you to connect to your NFC enabled devices to transfer data without the need for a wire. The accessory will be called the 'NFC Express.'

The unit will not only act as an NFC receiver, but also as a USB 3.0 hub, as it features two USB 3.0 ports. In addition, it also comes with its own NFC tag, which can be used as a key to log on to Windows 8 based systems without needing a password.

Asus' NFC Express accessory will ship standard with the Z87-Deluxe/DUAL motherboard, though it can also be purchased separately. Sadly, there is no information on what it would cost if purchased by itself.

    You're a couple months late on this. Newegg has been selling Asus NFC Express since at least June. They currently have it listed for $39.99 + $5.99 shipping.

    Linux is a great OS, but please don't misrepresent the facts. Windows still maintains 90% of the desktop OS market share.
