Reading NFC UID

Is it possible to read the NFC Tag UID as it can be done in other platforms?

The NDEF library operates on the NDEF layer of the tag, which is the content layer and thus one level above a tag UID. As such, the NDEF library can read the ID of the NDEF records.

As for reading the UID of the NFC tag itself, the support depends on the operating system. Unfortunately, Proximity APIs of Windows (Phone) 8 do not currently allow reading the NFC tag UID.
