Google has come up with their new Android Beam feature for the Ice Cream Sandwich. They have recently revealed this feature in a joint event with Samsung in Hongkong. As Google seems to already have embraced NFC for mobile payments, now this functionality also lets the user to simply tap two NFC-enabled tablets together to share a piece of information.

This feature really seems interesting as, for sharing any kind of information one just needs to put the NFC enabled device  with facing back to each other and just tap on the data required to be transferred to the other Tab and the data gets transferred to the other tab.

This feature will supposedly be working on a range of applications and services in Android, which also includes YouTube videos, contact information, maps, web pages, and even links to applications in the Android Market.
