Find an NFC tag (I bought some but you could use something else like a NFC enabled building pass or credit card for testing), install NFC Task Launcher and then hold the phone over the tag. It seems to have a very short range so I find that I have to hold the phone so that the middle is over the tag. If the tag is recognised, there will be a notification sound and a message.
