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

    Nokia is going to have a huge impact on Windows Phone. Let’s hope it’s all for good.

    Finding the facts for software is not hard because developers need early access to Windows Phone data in order to write their applications. Do a bit of reading on MSDN and it becomes “EXTREMELY CLEAR” that NFC is well under development for Windows Phone platforms.

    Read and you be the judge of what’s real or not.

      Thank you for sending me a list of Search results from MSDN,
      I’m also a developer and cannot see anywhere in your results which prove
      Microsoft have given access to the API for NFC or that NFC is in the current
      release of WP7. Also Microsoft gave there statement today that it was an error
      in what they said in there interview. If you have any proof I would be happy to
      see it. Also under devolpement & and released to the public for use is different.
