As one of the testers: Using an iOS system is not a real world option for me
because the iOS can execute commands stored on the NFC tag and getting a
plain file out of the tag over to some UNIX laptop is tricky. A real
world option for me would only be a Linux based mobile, like the
ones or a Purism L5, both have no NFC hardware at the moment and would
need an additional reader gadget.
