NFC is NOT currently supported in Windows Phone 7 PROOF

I confirmed on Saturday that my source from Nokia said that NFC will be coming with Apollo & today Microsoft confirmed this because of all the confusion that was created by the statement given to TechRader “As far as I’m aware, NFC is supported by [Windows Phone], but needs to be enabled by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer),” said Coleman. “So, if any OEM wants to enable it that can be done by all means.”

Microsoft spokesperson said to Winrumors “Microsoft would like to correct a previous statement it made around Near Field Communications,” said a company spokesperson to WinRumors on Monday. “While NFC is not currently supported on Windows Phone 7.5, it is coming. We expect NFC-enabled Windows Phone devices to ship within the next year.” This falls in line with the current expected dates for the Apollo launch. Nokia showed a key support for NFC at Nokia World and I’m sure we can expect a lot of great NFC devices from them maybe even the Lumia 900 will have NFC
