    For anyone looking to expand on the use of the build in NFC App, I've written an application that uses NFC tags to automate tasks (both a UI to build and write the tags as well as the read/execute portion).

    It is freely available over at XDA (ad-free) as well as a paid version in the Market (if you wish to support the development - all support is appreciated).
    [APP] NFC Task Launcher - 1.1 Released - xda-developers

    Launch features are as follows:

    Launch Features:
    - Enable/Disable/Toggle Wifi
    - Enable/Disable/Toggle Bluetooth
    - Connect to Known AP
    - Configure and Connect to new AP
    - Launching Applications
    - Configure and Enable Portable Hotspot
    - Launching of Tasker Tasks (if Tasker is installed and configured)

    A quick video of the app in use (before tasker support was added)

    We're working hard to make the NFC functionality of the Nexus S more useful for people (especially those of us US based) and hope this is helpful.
