Nokia Lumia 900 NFC?

Nokia Lumia 900 NFC?

Does the Nokia Lumia 900 support NFC or not?  Nokia literature silent but independent reviews claims it does.  Nokia Customer Support waffled and finally said no.  Recommended accessories include two NFC devices (Nokia Luna Bluetooth headset BH-220 and Nokia Play 360° Wireless Speaker MD-50W) and show videos illustrating pairing by tapping.  Unfortunately it looks like Nokia is taking some marketing liberties because the cyan candybar they use appears to be the N9 not the available Lumia 900.  Deceptive advertising?

 

Does the Lumia 900 have an NFC chip that will be enabled later via software or firmware update?

The Nokia Lumia N900 doesnt have NFC as detailed on the official Nokia website specifications on the web link below:

A Nokia Lumia NFC Edition will be available which has NFC capabilities and is the first Nokia Windows Phone to have NFC, which you can find out about if you google "Nokia Lumia 610 NFC"

Nice try but specifications don't mention NFC but independent reviews do.

Yes the release claim that 610 is first with NFC is what made me wonder if the Lumia 900 had NFC.  The videos for their Bluetook  recommended accessories include NFC and show the pairing via tap, but it looks like they are using an N9 (not available in USA but has NFC). Will the Lumia 900 get a software or firmware upgrade to NFC?
