Bug Description

There are no NFC settings. I don't know if it's a limitation of UT, but a lot of devices have NFC capabilities and this should be included in the settings.

@pat-mcgowan Does UT actually support NFC (ie all the required tools + kernel)? How hard would it be to port QtNFC to UT?

Currently the missing piece is the platform glue layer that can hook up the kernel/android HAL layer in our stack. It's in our roadmap, but the first thing to do is properly understand what are the missing pieces and how than can work together.

summary: - Add NFC settings
+ Add NFC support

It should be noted that with Qt 5.5 the only requirement for QtNFC is neard, whereas before it was only available on BlackBerry, so this is now possible.
