Very neat, but as I can never remembering the pairing codes for stuff like bluetooth headsets, it's a shame that the NFC pairing doesn't work easily with those yet.

Well, you can put the pairing code on the tag as-is. Or, as what BT 2.1 allows you to do, a full Diffie-Hellman key exchange so that the pairing code can be exchanged securely across NFC as well.

No more pairing codes for the user, hopefully. They're an abomination - though a necessary one!

As somebody who has worked on Simple Pairing for the last few years, it is pretty exciting to see the technology working and the promise of more intuitive interactions between wireless devices. Now, we just have to wait for the billion or so 'legacy' Bluetooth products out there in the wild to find their way to the junk pile.
