Leaked video confirms NFC for Windows Phone 8

Details of a video describing Windows Phone 8 features and confirming support for NFC have been reported by mobile gadget blog PocketNow.


The video is hosted by Microsoft senior vice president Joe Belfiore, says PocketNow, and explains that NFC radios will be supported “with Belfiore placing specific emphasis on 8’s push into contactless payments”:

The ‘wallet experience’, as he calls it, will have the capability to be carrier-branded and controlled, either by a secure element on the SIM card or utilizing hardware in the phone itself. In addition, tap-to-share capabilities will reportedly work across multiple platforms, allowing desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones to all share content.
