Looks like they're done with features and no NFC.
Not all features are shown at the start... I think you should know this by now.
Hello Samsung or Nokia.
still a 8mp camara lol oh god this a ****ing nightmare.
Oops, the game demo fooled me.
We keep seeing more features... hopefully it makes it.
Looks like it's wrapping up... looking highly unlikely.
too bad. and the fingerprint sensor can be swiped away as well..
i Do VERY MUCh like the improved battery life while still being thinner.
... one more thing
No surprise here, Apple doesn't see a need for it so they don't include it. They will be going another path and pushing retailers to follow. That will be a fun war to watch.
Seems iPhone is done. On to iPods.
Yup, sad. PassBook could have benefited heavily on NFC. Actually, that was something I thought would bring NFC to the iPhone, the addition of PassBook. Seems I was mistaken.
When they finally put a NFC chip in an iPhone, is it possible that earlier generation could take advantage with a NFC enabled sim card? (Of course that would mean the OS would have to support it too, or a jailbreak to support it).
This was confirmed. We been knew it would not have it. Jim said it.
No NFC is surprising.
I'm 50/50 disappointed. NFC isn't exactly widely used tech right now, and maybe it'd be better for everyone else to go through the growing pains
This is the apple way it seems. They could have adopted LTE in the 4S too, but they left it out.
Then again, it would have been nice to see some cutting edge stuff.
Oh well, NFC was at the bottom of the list for me anyways.
Doubtful. I don't see how they can fit NFC into a nano sim.
I'd like to take advantage of NFC, but I guess I have to wait my turn. To be honest, I don't often see NFC readers around. Just put it in an iPhone and as they say "if you build it, they will come".
NFC... no need
There is going to be a more universal standard. Big companies have already united to form the Merchant Customer Exchange. This will probably be the standard that everyone adopts.
Companies would be foolish to adopt NFC as the standard when hundreds of millions of smartphones currently in consumers hands do not have this technology. Now to adopt a standard with Wifi or bluetooth that these hundreds of millions of smartphone users could use, starting today, just by downloading an app... that's the smart way to go.
Check out the MCX - http://jdlink.us/Noyt79

I guess I just assumed MCX would use NFC. Have they said they are planning to use something else?
Am disappointed no NFC.
Wont make me switch to Android, but still disappointed.
No NFC is indeed disappointing. It's not just for paying stuff, some countries don't even have the infrastructure yet. But they could integrate the NFC MAC ID with imessage for example, so you could add your friend phone to the contact just by letting the 2 phones touch for couple seconds. As a start, that would be pretty luxury for iphone user.
That's just dirty!
More like naughty.
Ok not really "touching", make it needs to rub each other! Including the users
