I guess it is better to wait for the NFC version. Is it likely to be the same price? Also the price of the non-NFC version might drop.

I really want my Galaxy S 2 now as I'm sick of my phone, but I just saw this and thought I should wait. Not sure if the price will increase or not since I'm going for the phone on contract. :/

It now seems unclear whether or not NFC will be available in June. Some say yes, others say it will be later in the year.

I dont think NFC will be that wide spread until next year even though Mastercard and Visa are launching during the summer.

Yeah, I didn't bother waiting for it. Just ordered mine today. Someone told me they're putting Tegra2 in the NFC versions so it's better to get them now.

Cheers for that.

I may be wrong, but isn't the Tegra2 technically a lesser processor?

Not an ideal solution possibly, but -

It is already out. But compared to the SGSII its pretty s*** since its running only at 1GHZ and not 1.2 etc.
