Since the Jolla tablet doesn't seem to have an interchangeable back cover, it would be awesome to have NFC built right in. NFC really is a feature that facilitate interconnection between other phones/tablets or additional gear.

This will also give a starting point for social apps that rely on data exchange – like sharing pictures, listening to music or just quickly moving contact details. Also, even Apple uses NFC nowadays for its payment service.

All this said, I assume the Jolla tablet definitely has a Bluetooth connection?

Bluetooth is in the specs

Since hardware specs seems to be pretty unmodifiable, a simple answer would be nice.

Is there NFC (even without software to use it yet) just not advertised or not ?

Since it's an Atom chip, I believe there is no NFC since an additional chip would be needed (but I'd be glad to be wrong).

+1 for NFC NFC is a must-have for me. I'm very upset that my jolla phone doesn't support real NFC. I use it to connect to NFC-Bluetooth-Speeker, NFC-Camera, before jolla I also had my train ticket with NFC etc.

Please support NFC

NFC would be nice for using a Yubikey Neo. Please Add it

Jolla Roadmapping Meeting - Friday 16.01.2015

Thank you for your contribution to the Jolla Tablet project!

We receive a lot of ideas and suggestions, which we are grateful for, but all of them can't be implemented. We've reviewed your idea and unfortunately it is not something we can implement, at least right now.

However, we will keep all suggestions, and might revisit this decision in the future if we see an opportunity to implement this feature-request in an upcoming product/SW release.

Best regards,
The Jolla Tablet Team
