For some odd reason RIM went along with Verizon in disabling NFC in the launch OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 on Verizon. Thankfully it looks like the lock is simply OS based instead of some service book. Adam @CrackBerry noticed that this latest leak of OS 126.96.36.1990 enables NFC on the Verizon Bold 9930. There is not much a regular user can use with this but it does open the door for devs to create some cool applications.
I am simply waiting for an app that lets you share contact info by tapping phones… 🙂
