highly doubt it's real since if it's there, HTC should've advertise it so they will get more praise for it.

What about the Samsung s2? That has NFC but not in the software.

Probably not. NFC can't get through the metal back cover. Since it can't, I doubt HTC put any NFC chips in the device.

That's why the top and bottom covers are plastic. NFC could get out, just like wifi and cell does.

Why would they put NFC in the device and not advertise it ? They know what they put into the phone as much as id like it to be real it must be fake

Be nice if this is true. Not too bothered about it now though as NFC isn't really a big feature here in the UK (yet.....) and can't see it being that popular/"the norm" for at least another year.



It has happened in other phones as well i.e. my last android phone, the Samsung galaxy spica i5700, it had a FM radio chip and also multi-touch, both weren't enabled with stock samsung software and weren't advertised at all or listed in the specs. either, thankfully, one great developer got the multi-touch working superbly.
