Emailed samsung asking about if a 32gb s2 is coming out at all like they advertised. And also asked about NFC and which regions will get it.
There response:

following assistance.

Regarding your case, kindly note we currently won’t be able to assist
you in knowing whether the phone will be issued in the market with 32gb
memory size, as this is wholly a Sales Plan, we don’t hold much
information on.

In regards to your query on the NFC, please note that we have just
received the updates that the NFC would be launched in the UK by June,
however, we don’t hold enough information on the regions it will be
available with.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and please wait for
anymore updates on this from our Website.

If you require any further assistance, please contact Samsung again and
we will be more than happy to help.

Take it as you will, but it appears samsung are to release the NFC version to the uk by June? Since the phone officially launched a week ago, it's safe to imply that the NFC will be out, I'd imagine it would be in the 32gb one...

Also if you view 'features' on the galaxy s2 microsite, it says and I quote '*thickness of the devices is Different (with/without NFC)

So that as well as what the CS rep said in the email would look as though we are looking at a June release for a thicker s2 which would have in it NFC and most likely the 32gb version, so in retrospect think '3G/3Gs'
