Yeah. This is one of the few times where the 3rd-party version is better than what is built-in the "Google" version of the OS. The file transfers using Android Beam are too slow to be useful, but using wi-fi direct would make it way better.

Too bad too. Of course Google Wallet doesn't even support my device so it wouldn't matter.
any place that has the credit card beam instead of swipe capabilities NFC will work.

works the same way.

I never swipe cards anymore as it wears them out.
use the beam chip on them and just hold them close.

Yup, I use it very often to send pics, links, etc, from my Nexus S to my 7 and vice versa. Really handy.

I've used Google NFC payments on my Nexus S a handful of times. It was cool to show off but not more convenient than using your card.
