iPhone 5 Disappoints Home Automation Users

In my opinion, Apple has made a grave error with the iPhone 5 that will set it back a year compared to Android: lack of support for NFC.

As expected, it’s faster, thinner, higher resolution, has a better camera, integrated voice and data on a single chip, and some new cool apps. It’s hard to fathom how Apple could have omitted such a key, and rapidly growing, technology. What’s really bizarre is that Apple has six patents related to mobile payments.

At last week’s CEDIA, Crestron debuted their airConnect solution that allows $1 NFC tags to be scattered liberally around the house and it uses a Phone’s NFC reader and WiFi to communicate with the main server.

Even retail is ramping up its use of NFC with more and more swipe to pay terminals appearing. According to Gartner, worldwide mobile payments will surpass $170 billion in 2012 (up 61.9 percent over 2011)

I’m bitterly disappointed and will have to seriously consider switching to Android or WM 8. I’m not prepared to wait another year for NFC.
