Bluetooth file sharing made easy.

Google is set to introduce a new Bluetooth file sharing system with Android 2.3.3 that should make the process a whole lot simpler than tearing our hair out with pairing, synchronizing, and security coding through the mess.

According to PocketNow, Google will utilize the power of Near Field Communication (NFC) to simply scan another device and then automatically initiate a Bluetooth transfer. The whole process will require minimal user-interaction and will do away with searching and pairing devices.

Currently, only Google’s own Nexus S features the dual goodness of NFC and Bluetooth but more handsets featuring the technologies are expected shortly.
