Nah, I've never thought NFC and whole Google Wallet thing was ever a good feature. Unless it does something other than replace a credit card, I'll pass.

I love NFC and will have it on my next phone. Even the Starbucks app alone is useful for me.

It does, actually. In fact, the sky is the limit. There are already applications out there for using it to securely unlock doors, quickly exchange information (without e.g. having to email, text, etc) and more.

In fact, there's actually a trend going around lately that business cards are dying. A lot business contacts these days prefer to simply add to each other's information to their devices, because nobody wants to carry around a bunch of business cards. NFC makes that simple, just tap your phones together and you have all of the relevant info.

You can do a lot more than that, Android has a whole API segment dedicated to NFC.

But as an iphone user, I understand how your mind works: You'll hate any feature that android has and iphone does not, until iphone adds it, then it's the best feature in the world

Exchanging info sounds alright, but it's not something I can shoot in a quick email. But can it make me a sandwich? That's what I thought!

Yes, I will make a huge deal about it when the iPhone 5 comes out. Glad you have me all figured out buddy. Just like location services, NFC would still be a feature that is always powered off.

This has happened before, and it will happen again...the cycle repeats, endlessly.

A scorpion was wandering along the bank of the river, wondering how to get to the other side. Suddenly he saw a fox. He asked the fox to take him on his back across the river.

The fox said, "No. If I do that, you'll sting me and I'll drown."

The scorpion assured him, "If I did that, we'd both drown."

So the fox thought about it and finally agreed. So the scorpion climbed up on his back and the fox began to swim. But halfway across the river, the scorpion stung him.

As the poison filled his veins, the fox turned to the scorpion and said, "Why did you do that? Now you'll drown too."

"I couldn't help it," said the scorpion. "I'm a troll."

Here you guys will love this one:

Because iphone uses dated technology, Verizon is quietly pushing customers to buy Android devices instead:

And your phone can't do 4g either, something android phones have been doing for over 2 years now.

I don't care about 4G.
You obviously don't either since you are with Sprint
