Yeh I just ended up buying them, figured I might need the extra memory. From the site below for people in Australia (I contacted them and they confirmed there is complete overlap b/w this and the NTAG203 besides the memory) :

I programmed my Buss Pass and Bank Card to open their respective apps you can't write to them but they can be used as a trigger.. You can use anything with a NFC Chip in it!

Good if you want to experiment and you don't have any tags yet. I'm using NFC Task Launcher (Now Trigger) and the Update, that may be required for this to work.

I have been reading this NFC thread with great interest.
Can this only work by tapping the phone on the tag or does it work near distance?

The range depends on what kind of phone you have but I think varies between 1-4cm or so. You are pretty much tapping it at that distance anyway.

has anybody figured out how to get the tags to detect when the phone is in sleep mode/lock screen is active?
