In Pictures: Windows Phone 8 - killer new features...
NFC has thus far been off to a slow start in the United States--but with Microsoft making it a big feature of Windows Phone 8, that may soon change. Microsoft said today that you'll be able to use NFC on Windows Phone 8 phones to send data (and possibly documents, photos, music, and video) from one Windows Phone 8 device to another simply by tapping them together.
You'll even be able to use NFC to send data between phones and laptops, though we didn't get a chance to see how that would work.
