Hey guys, just a quick question about NFC on the PlayBook. I was searching the BB site and when looking at the Blackberry Music Gateway, I noticed it had the PB listed under NFC compatible devices. Are they talking about the new 4G PB, and does that mean it's coming sooner than we thought?

The updated Playbook's passed through the FCC a couple of months ago with NFC, 4G, and dual band wifi (not sure if that last one is new though)."Illness is the most heeded of doctors: to goodness and wisdom we only make promises; pain we obey." - Marcel Proust

"The updated tablet will sport an updated 1.5Ghz dual-core processor and will have NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled from the get go."

Confirmed here at Blackberry World during a Canadian Breakfast a few hours before the main keynote is the new BlackBerry PlayBook with 4G LTE. The updated tablet will sport an updated 1.5Ghz dual-core processor and will have NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled from the get go. It will likely look very much like the current PlayBook. Stay tuned for more from BlackBerry World 2012.
The keynote is over now and no LTE PlayBook has been announced yet. Above is the slide showing some details of the device.

I've seen the question posted on twitter to RIM and others but haven't seen any official response yet from RIM regarding this. I'll send an email to RIM seeking clarification regarding this and see what type of response, if any, I get back.
Edit: @BlackBerryHelp sent this to me this morning: "NFC is not supported on the Playbook"
