Samsung hopes to galvanize consumer demand for services powered by near-field communications with NFC stickers called TecTiles that are aimed at getting consumers used to physically tapping their smartphones. Consumers can apply the one-inch square tags -- which cost $14.99 for a pack of five -- to spaces such as office desks and car consoles to perform any number of functions including launching applications and sending text messages by programming their Galaxy phones. Samsung could eventually leverage the TecTiles to start its own mobile wallet service.
