Samsung Omnia W to have NFC and a 1.4GHz processor Windows Phone 7 rumor
This evening brings an NFC WP7 Rumor that could gain some traction because it has been suggested by SamFirmware that the upcoming Samsung Omnia W will feature NFC support, which was reported by WMPowerUser. SamFirmware has a good track record in Samsung rumors tweeted earlier today that the as yet unannounced Samsung Omnia W Windows Phone 7 smartphone is due to feature NFC, have a 3.7-inch display and skip along on a 1.4GHz processor. This revelation really does fall in to the realm of WP7 rumors and has not been confirmed as yet in anyway but it is in line with other whispers that have circulated about Samsung’s upcoming WP7 Mango smartphone.

Will the Samsung Galaxy S II / Attain / Function / Within have an NFC chip installed?
August is nearly here and that is said to be the month that the US finally gets its hands on the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is all set to be known as the Attain, Function & Within on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint respectively. Two big questions have been left unanswered about the US versions of the super selling Samsung Galaxy S II – will it play nice with LTE, and will it have an NFC chip installed? Trying to find an answer to these questions has been like trying to milk fish and perhaps, just maybe we may have our first clue to at least the NFC riddle. Eric Zeman over at InformationWeek posted an intriguing comment in his blog about the potential of the Samsung Galaxy S II having the NFC chip built in, but it being dependent on a carrier-to-carrier basis to whether it is enabled.
“It comes with support for a near-field communication (NFC) chip, but this option would need to be selected by network operators selling the device. It is possible that U.S. network operators will ship the S II with NFC activated, especially since they are closer to deploying mobile payment services,” said Zeman.

Is this i9101 the NFC-enabled Samsung Galaxy S II?
What’s thinner than an iPhone, rocks a 1.2 GHZ dual core processor and will soon join the elite stable of NFC-enabled smartphones? Well in the case of the blurry photo above we hope that GT-i9101 means it’s the NFC-enabled Samsung Galaxy S II. Since its launch, the Galaxy S II has received rave reviews. Sammy has sold a million units of these power house smartphones bearing the Galaxy S moniker in South Korea alone and the U.K. wasn’t too displeased with this phone either. However, it lacked a certain je ne sais quoi to fully be the bleeding edge monster we all hoped it would be, while its stable mate the Nexus S took all the glory bathing in its NFC-enabled glory.
