The Smart Tags application explained

The Smart Tags app allows you to take bits of information including text, phone numbers, websites, and other URIs and transform them into a smart tag. You can transfer the smart tag to an NFC tag or a QR code or you can pass the smart tag directly to another BlackBerry device. The Smart Tags app also allows you to store the smart tags that you receive and use them or pass them on later.

Instead of handing out business cards, try creating a smart tag that contains your phone number or email address so that recipients can call, text, or email you with a click. Have an event coming up? Try making a smart tag that contains the event information then transferring the tag to a writeable NFC tag or QR code that is attached to a small favor for your guests.

Depending on your wireless service provider and your device model, the NFC feature might not be available.
