Does anybody know if the new features introduced in ICS (Beam feature for instance) may help in the use of 'NFC card emulation' ?
It appears that nobody has yet performed card-emulation on the Nexus S running ICS 4.0.x.
I tried it myself, and obtained limited functionality. I was also not able to read the ID of the emulated card when the phone was off. (that somehow defies the purpose of card emulation.)
I managed to force the ID of the secure element to be fixed. The phone can now be read by an NFC reader even when the phone is off. The Nexus S' NFC antenna (found on the back cover, under a black coating) is powered by the RF field generated by the reader and the embedded SE can be read by the external reader.
If anybody is still interested in the above subject, I will post my steps and compiled sources.
