Google Wallet : A High End Product from Google

Google.Inc posted an awesome video for Google Wallet featuring George Costanza. Google had sent statements to partners that it would be released Sept. 19 , the launch day. Which was considered the accurate date for public use. 
Who Can Use Google Wallet ?

Back in May when Google Wallet & offers were unveiled, Google stated that field trails for Wallet would begin immediately during this summer. While this will be the official launch, the product itself will likely still be quite limited. The only officially compatible phone is the Nexus S 4G,
which is only available on Sprint in the U.S. Google has an NFC sticker product to bring tap-and-pay to other phones, but it’s not clear if that will be ready at launch or not. Hardware to enable the payments on the merchant end is also needed. And again, MasterCard has been the only official partner on the credit card side of things so far. Perhaps Google will have more to say on that tomorrow. But the above documentation still points to PayPass-enabled Citi MasterCards as the only way to use the service for now.
It also makes sense for Google to get Wallet out there now before their next flagship Android phone, the Nexus Prime, launches next month. It too will have NFC capabilities built in and will bring the Wallet functionality to the much larger Verizon customer base. The Techbay | All Rights Reserved.
