**** UPDATE *****
They've now removed NFC from this release. Good old Play.com! The info below was copied and pasted from the original description and for some reason they've taken it off. Perhaps we will still get a September release of the S2 with NFC? Who knows?

It is just the NFC which is updated as far as I'm aware as the 16gb without NFC is already available from Amazon. I've been waiting for this to be released with NFC for many months. Would make sense that they release the black version at the same time but it's not showing up on the site yet. Personally I'm just happy to see a UK release date of the S2 with NFC :-) Hope others will take notice too.

Play suck, and for that reason, I'm out!
I remember phoning Orange cancellations asking about the original release date of this phone and they tried to fob me off with the Galaxy Ace instead saying how good it was. What a joke that was! Told them to stuff it. How right I was as the price of Galaxy S2 is still near £500 whereas they are practically giving away the Galaxy Ace phone, and it's only been out 2 months. This says a lot about the quality of the Galazy S2!
Brilliant news, expect the price of the orig s2 to tumble over the next month.
Damn it's cold in here....:p
Haters gonna hate
starting to get frostbite pretty soon...
"Leave your wallet at home" does not NFC only allow payments of upto £15.00 like other touchless payments? £15.00 would struggle to get you a meal in Chav Mcdonalds for the family!!!
cold from me. NFC will NOT catch on until the big payment card players sign up for it with a standardized set of rules for ALL to follow.

NFC payments are capped at £15 at the moment. But that will change when demand increases. But hey, if you don't like NFC then that's your loss. However if someone is wanting to buy an amazing phone, which is still going to be amazing in 12/18 or even 24 months then this is the phone to get. Not only are you ahead of the game now but many months down the line when NFC is standard you can rest assured your phone is going to be able to handle it.

You're right! It looks like they've changed the description since I found this!! Glad I copied and pasted the item description for future records. This now blows. And back to the drawing board with the NFC release. Sad times.
