"The battery on both handsets for example has an NFC chip"
This is FALSE!!! The battery only has an NFC ANTENNA, NOT the NFC chip! I don't understand how hard this is to understand. I have seen this repeated over and over and it isn't true.
I registered just to post this. :)

Where did you read it had no nfc chip? According to this articlehttp://www.phonearena.com/news

Why are you quoting a source I said already got it wrong a few times? Why do you think I posted what I did? Here is iFixit's teardown of the Galaxy Nexus.
From Step 5 :Lo and behold, there's a sweet antenna hiding underneath the battery's shiny wrapper.
From Step 12: According to Chipworks, this two-die package houses an MCU and a PN544 NFC controller.
NO NFC chip on the battery, only the NFC antenna.

Sorry, we only have NFC chips here...no cookies.
