Chip maker Intel has been getting some NFC religion lately as it looks to incorporate the short-distance radio technology into its chipset. The latest sign is an agreement with French NFC chip maker Inside Secure, which will provide NFC technology and products to Intel.

NFC chipmaker ships 10M units to date in 2011

NFC chip maker Inside Secure said it’s shipped 10 million NFC solutions so far this year to a number of manufacturers who are building contactless support into a variety of devices. That far off dream of NFC is finally becoming a reality.
