    Does anyone think the London or other BB10 phones will have NFC? Personally, I don't see a reason to include it because NFC is still 5 years or so away from substantial adoption to implement it in phones. I'm curious because I am baffled why RIM put NFC in OS7 phones, especially the 9900, and not include an autofocus camera.

    Two things:
    1. NFC isn't five years away. I'm starting to see it used in office buildings.
    2. RIM will include it, they've already put it on OS 7 phones.

    RIM has plans for NFC that don't include payment. Do a search for Blackberry Tag and read up on some of them. Also research the QNX Porsche to see some other applications.

    Yepp. RIM has Blackberry Tag. And what better way to implement NFC with a brand new OS on a brand new platform?

    Adoption rate would be through the roof and they'd have concrete numbers of who actually has it. Something they're planning on selling in large numbers.

    I hope they have it. I'd rather have NFC than not have it on a phone. Google's been pushing NFC also.

    With the exception of the extra cheap 9220/9320, the odds are that NFC will be a standard part of every new blackberry from now on in just the same way as wifi, bt etc.
