BUG WATCH: NFC is fairly broken in +Android 4.4 Kit Kat on the +Nexus 7 2013.

Can folks with other devices on Kit Kat give this a try? I'm curious if it's limited to just the Nexus 7. The only way I've found to get it to work is to toggle Airplane Mode, but then I only have maybe 30 seconds before NFC stops working.

Nice to see the issue I opened finally getting some traction.
+Denham Crafton I've only seen it on my N7 2013, I have a mako, maguro, and grouper all upgraded and NFC works perfectly.  Only deb/flo seems to have an issue.
It is actually a Nexus 7 2013 only issue, and it affects a really small number of N7s. Sad that the tech blogs somehow seemed to have expanded this to N4, N7 2012, N5 and N10...we're not aware of this issue affecting other devices.
+Martijn Coenen I'm not sure where those blogs got the idea that it affects other devices. My Nexus 5 and SGS4 never had issues on Kit Kat. In the end, I got my Nexus 7 "fixed" by having the Google Play Hardware Support Team replace it, after advising them that I had gone so far as to try ROMs which were tested as working with NFC on other devices and re-flashing the stock Nexus firmware with no success.

New Nexus 7 has worked fine with no issues whatsoever.
