Can an NFC mobile phone read PN532 RFID/NFC Shield?

In your product page http://www.adafruit.com/products/789, it says

This chipset is very powerful, and can pretty much do it all, such as read and write to tags and cards, communicate with phones (say for payment processing), and 'act' like a NFC tag. While the controller has many capabilities, our Arduino library currently only supports reading/writing tags, and does not support phone-to-shield communication, tag emulation (which requires an external 'secure element' only available from NXP) or other more advanced features at this time.

So do you support an NFC mobile phone read your PN532 RFID/NFC Shield like a NFC tag? If not, do you have a plan when to support it?

Thanks a lot.

Can you use to communicate with something like a Galaxy Nexus, through NFC?

Yes!

Do you mean Yes? If so, can you give a tutorial how?

Yes, the chip is capable of doing that. No, we do not have a tutorial or direct support in the library for it.
