Samsung bringing it's Galaxy Series extras will help it's ATIV series so much. I can only hope Sammy includes the ATIV in it's "The Next Big Thing is Already Here" market campaign. Sammy can launch the ATIV a little later then HTC or Nokia launch their WP8's if they get behind it. This is the first true hint that Sammy may truly be willing to give WP a great push. A motivated Samsung can only help WP8 in general.
We can hope, right?

Can you share between 2 different OS's? Since a lot of my co-workers are on androids, it would be nice to be able to share documents with them easily like that. I also assume any Windows 8 tablet with NFC should be able to be shared with as well?

Also hoping that WP8 incorporates regular Bluetooth file transfer sans NFC... there are a lot of non-NFC devices out there.

NFC is cool, so don't get me wrong here. But if you and your mates devices are already BT paired, isn't it just as easy, or easier to send a file via BT, from 20ft away. Assuming BT has been enabled in WP8 of course.
I see NFC as a plus for sending something to someone you have never paired with before, eliminating that step. Also for retail purchasing and tapping those slick tags.
Just think the tapping phones amongst family members or close friends commercials are just like the Siri ads. Lots of hype, but not all that effective. I mean, you still have to select a file before you tap. Samsungs can't read your mind yet. Am I missing something?

Of course, I could be misinterpreting how NFC works. You also probably don't care if your phone is paired with people you know automatically, in which case my scenario and yours are different.

NFC will work between all NFC equipped devices. The question is what capabilities will work between different devices/OS. If I'm sharing part of WP 8 via NFC (like a contact) it SHOULD be able to share it to any other WP 8 phone regardless of manufacturer. Depending on file types it should also be able to share it to other OS phones (like emailing a vcard).
