Hercules with the NFC support will stand alongside Google Nexus S 4G, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Wave 578, BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and Nokia N9 as all of them have NFC support. The iPhone 5 is rumored to have an NFC support but the UK carriers revealed that Apple will abstain from NFC as it believes that there is no industry standard related to the technology.
