    If the whole metal back was the NFC antenna, that'd be awesome. It could also be that the Apple logo emblazoned on the back is actually plastic, as it is on the iPad and NFC could be transmitted through the plastic Apple. We'll know come next week, though. :)

    Apple has patents for NFC to work within metal, and inside of the LCD screen. Either patent might be implemented in the iPhone 5.
