What is NFC?

Is this the new system that makes better use of battery so they last longer?

NFC stands for Near Field Communication, with this technology you can put your phone against another NFC phone to send them content faster and easier than bluetooth and with some phone makers are making NFC tags so when you tap your phone against your phone changes settings depending on how you set them. Also it can be used for making payments using like google wallet and isis at stores that accepts those payments.

I don't think this phone works with Isis though.? at least not yet right?

*proves NFC is not so big as of yet* hopefully this will boom soon. NFC promises alot. hopefully the can provide some better securities on it though. I have some some interesting stuff and NFC based virus. Wouldnt that suck....

I'm pretty sure, to be ISIS compatable, it just needs a special sim card, and an app.

Recently Verizon included support for ISIS in the Jelleybean update for the Motorola Razr M. So it comes via updates.

Near Field Communication. I know basically what it does but someone can probably explain it better than me. Basically, no, it has nothing to do with that battery saving tech.

It's an extremely short-range wireless technology. Short-range as in one inch. So the basic idea is that you tap the phone against something to communicate data, such as making a payment.

Hey Rich might you happen to know how much retail will be?

I gotta keep me Unlimited 4G LTE data!!!

What are the chances that this will get the Jellybean update???
Any idea if the Stratosphere II will have the same S Voice capabilities that the S3 has? That would be cool!
What about RAM, at least 1GB of RAM?
Probably not the same 2GB's of RAM that the S3 has.
What about Qualcomm's S4 chip? It's energy efficient, and runs cooler than my Samsung Droid Charge.
