The tattoo would communicate over Near-Field Communications, Bluetooth, Infrared or other short-range technology to a nearby smartphone, tablet, wearable computer, gaming device or other mobile computer.

Why tablet marketing is totally different than mobile marketing

May 23, 2013

The primary reason marketers need to consider a specific tablet strategy is that smartphones are far more mobile, can’t-leave-home-without-it, devices. Tablets? Actually, almost the reverse; they’re far more commonly used in the home by consumers.
