Check, control room, control room lighting, and much more: if you can this summer, the Holiday Inn in Stratford City site. This hotel is not entirely coincidentally convenient for the Olympic Park this weekend where the Summer Games begin.
Through a special collaboration between Samsung and InterContinental Hotels Group – owner of Holiday Inn – it is possible to spot your Galaxy S3 to use almost everything to do what you order, and with a hotel can do.
It is the first time that such integration of smart phone and hotel room outside Southeast Asia is offered, and hopefully the beginning of the real integration of smart phones with NFC – Near Field Communication – in everyday life.
In fact that Samsung and the hotel course just on its own app, which lets you check in and out, room service calls, television can serve as the lighting, and local opportunities and offers to explore. Also serves your Galaxy S3 via NFC as key to the room itself.
What does interest us is: Is that something, such an application for your smart phone? You sit there waiting, and you think that such an application will make life easier, whether it is a hotel-app, or any other similar application?
Hip is sure – but this is the future for smartphones? That far from the Holiday Inn has come up with such an offer may be clear :)
