    Windows phone 8 does not support wifi direct yet. Any news if the feature is expected to be activated on current devices in future ?

    I'm not sure when Microsoft will enable this. Even then, I'm not sure if the hardware is there on the current crop of phones for Wifi-direct

    When you say that it is available on L820, can you please specify? I have a L920, and I'm wondering how WiFi Direct can work on my WP8.

    For instance, if I have an NFC box - WiFi Direct compatible - that wants to send me some data, will it work on my WP8 to tap my phone to the box, then receive the data through WiFi Direct? (With an app, of course)

    WiFi Direct is not supported, documented under the Windows.Networking.Proximity namespace.

    WP 8.1 will add support for Wi-Fi Direct, as well as VPN and Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
