The forthcoming HTC Incredible 4G LTE, expected to debut in the US on Verizon, will come with NFC according to Droid Life. The report cites a post on social news site Reddit in which a contributor claims “I had many successful NFC demos” when he was given a preview of the handset by an HTC rep. The current HTC Incredible does not sport the technology but a version is available in China that has built-in support for microSD-based NFC.
