To me NFC seems to be a useless technology and I'd much rather see engineers spending time on things like battery life or performance. I would not mind one bit if the Razr HD doesn't have it. I don't think any stores near me use it. If I used a mass transit system and it took NFC I guess that would be very cool but I just have no use for it and think it's a waste. I'll be interested when every store I go to accepts it or I can at least use it to buy gas.
I'm curious, what do you want it for? Do you use it now? If so what for and is it actually faster than using your credit card?
