No NFC on New Torch 9860

I have a new Torch 9860 OS7 but there is no NFC connection option. I also have a new Bold 9900 OS7 and it does have NFC. is there an upgrade or way to add NFC to the 9860?

The 9900 has a built-in NFC antenna (in the battery cover).  The 9850/9860 and the 9810 do not have an NFC antenna.  So, no -- you cannot upgrade.

That's strange since every webshop I'm looking at says it does support NFC, some even state that it has an NFC chip on board.

So which is it?

Re: No NFC on New Torch 9860

The only safe source to check is RIM's Blackberry.com.  The 9900 specs and user namual discuss NFC.  The Specs and guides for the 9860 and 9810 do not.  Also, the lack of NFC on those 2 models was mentioned in a number of the OS& device release reviews.
