Just when we thought that Google Wallet is getting no where comes the news that Google has decided to open it up to more devices. Earlier, there were several criticisms on Google Wallet being restricted to Google’s own Nexus phone and not being of any particular help to “regular folks”.
Now, Google Wallet is available on three new phones from Sprint, including: Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper 4G LTE and LG Optimus Elite.
Google Nexus unlocked was made available last day and is now available for buying.
When Google announced the Wallet last May, Mastercard was the only card company that embraced it. With all the hype surrounding the announcement, it seemed like it would launch with all the major credit cards’ support – Visa, American Express, and maybe even PayPal. As of now, Google has established partnerships with Visa and AmEx, but those companies do not yet exist on the actual product.
This move, however opens up a lot more possibilities and I’m hoping in the next couple of months, should bring more action in this area – payment gateways are indeed the hot thing at the moment!
