Android Open NFC gets a bit more open

What's the advantages...

Would love to know more about the advantages of NFC over, for example, QR codes. I get the whole being used for payments side of NFC however I don't see the advantage over something such as QR codes. Especially seeing how QR codes just require you to have a phone with a camera and internet connection where as the NFC requires your phone to have the NFC reading hardware built into it. Other than pointing you to a website - what would the NFC be able to do differently than a QR code?
