Doesn't the Galaxy S II have NFC? Maybe just not enabled or 'turned on' yet?
"The Galaxy S II is one of the earliest Android devices to natively support near field communication (NFC). This follows on from the Google Nexus S which was the first de-facto NFC smartphone device."
You know, Tom's Guide, they wouldn't expand if only 1 handset would support NFC. There are more than 5 handsets coming out with NFC in a few months. Google wouldn't be investing if it wasn't expandable. Time for Apple to play catch up now...What's next from them, the "innovative" iMoney? iWallet? Don't make me laugh...
Never heard Tom's say, for instance, "Siri is good, but only on one phone...". When it's an Apple product, it's the latest and greatest, but when it's coming from their competition, it's "extremely limited".
"Extremely limited" job, Kevin! Way to document yourself about other NFC-capable phones! That's what I call iJournalism.
NFC will catch on, not that I see myself using it anytime soon. They will take of by offering these deep discounts only by using the Wallet.
You gotta start somewhere and Google knows NFC will be in many more phones so they are just getting ready for it. Better for them to have the software up and running so that when NFC becomes more widespread they are ready to take over
