More photos posted comparing size of new "iPhone 5" to iPhone 4S

Apple's event is less than a week away, and it's hard to imagine that, given all the leaks and rumors, they'll say something we don't already know. More photos of the new iPhone have been posted by iResQ that compare the height and thickness with the iPhone 4S. Also, according to AppleInsider, new photos have been posted that again suggest that the iPhone 5 won't have a near field communication (NFC) chip, which is used for digital-wallet transactions. Apple seems to have its own solution in mind rather than jumping on the NFC bandwagon.
