    I've had my 8x since launch on VZ. Just got a nokia DT-910 from Amazon delivered today. Good news is it charges! (Yeah). Bad news... no NFC I guess.
    Actually, I was wondering if there was a good clock/alarm app that anyone could recommend. I am going to use this as my nightstand alarm clock and would prefer to have this dim to lowest setting and show the time. Not sure its doable or even if I should do it...(Screen burn?)

    thoughts? suggestions?

    Well NFC is a definite no. But I found a great clock app that will do the job. Any other 8x users looking for the same thing... here ya go:

    You have to download an Accessories app from Nokia to work with the DT-910. I forget the link off-hand. I think there is a thread about it with the link to the download.

    If I find it before you do I will post. Love the changer and app.

    Yeah, the NFC tap brought up a screen to search for an app. It which it found nothing... :(

    But at least it still charges and I have a clock app that satisfies what I was looking to do.
