Are Windows Phone 7 devices getting an NFC update?

• 30/03/2011

Word is that Windows Phone 7 devices may see some NFC love in the coming weeks as two sources at Bloomberg have stated they believe Microsoft will be sending out software to WP7 devices allowing NFC functionality, for those with NFC chips obviously.

That said, Microsoft plans on making sure that any future WP7 devices come with the NFC hardware built-in, making their devices a little closer in the running for fully featured smartphones. NFC is still something that not everyone has jumped on board with, but we keep hearing about them testing it, so…no doubt it’s not far away at all.
