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.

    Technically he was also correct, as are you. You brought up desktop OS statistics, he simply said operating system. The OS of many of the industrial, commercial, and home products available that are not "computers" in the traditional sense, but employ computing elements are Linux based.
