Well, don't know if the NFC hardware is still on board but there are no NFC (or Android Beam) settings to be found. Taking a quick glance over at the specs listed at the Google Play Store and you'll notice no mention of NFC their either.

Update: I installed Trigger (formerly NFC Task Launcher) on my G Pad GPE to see if maybe the NFC was on by default (if on board at all) but none of the NFC tags I had previously set up a while back worked. Did the same thing on my Nexus 7 to make sure they still worked and all activated the settings they were previously configured for. Also, the sidebar menu on the Nexus 7 includes a 'Other NFC Actions' category but it's missing on the G Pad.
