    It certainly looks like the next IPhone is set to have NFC so that it works with Passbook, is that true? Did any source come out and confirm this?

    It would be a great feature within IPhone 5 if that was the case...

    Though no one has been able to confirm NFC in the next phone I agree it's highly likely from what we have seen so far.

    Passbook without NFC is a little shallow.

    Also, Apple holds more than 26 NFC related patents, so I would expect them to start deploying soon.

    I hope so... and it does seem like the next step in the evolution of mobile devices - even for Apple.

    I only hope they get the barcode scanning function working better than the current crop of "key tag" apps... I only have one store that is able to consistently scan those things...

    That's really cool. I can't wait to be able to store my store cards on my phone and have them pop up whenever I enter the store's location.
