The next BlackBerry OS update will have BlackBerry Tag according to Research In Motion Co-CEO Jim Balsillie. The tag will allow users to share contact information, documents, URLS, photos and other contents. The sharing will be done by simply tapping the BlackBerry phones together. On top of that, the  BlackBerry Tag will also enable friends to instantly add one another as contacts on BBM.

BlackBerry Tag takes advantage of Near Field Communications (NFC) technology included in the recently launched BlackBerry smartphones

RIM also announced plans to expose BlackBerry Tag through APIs on the BlackBerry platform, allowing software developers to take advantage of “tap to share” functionality from within their own applications.
