Nokia Confirms NFC Functionality in the C7
Nokia has confirmed a report that its C7 device does indeed include circuitry supporting near-field communications (NFC). A Nokia spokesperson told Phone Scoop in an email, "The Nokia C7 includes NFC chip but the first software version of the device does not support NFC yet. The software can later be upgraded to support NFC functionality." NFC technology allows devices to make contactless payments by linking them to credit cards and other banking vehicles. Users can tap their phone against am NFC reader, and make wireless electronic payments for goods at retail establishments. Earlier this year, Nokia cancelled a planned device which was equipped with NFC.

All that comes to mind (maybe its the hacker/pessimist in me) are cons. The pros just aren't worth the risks.
Any differing view wish to speak up?
