Yesterday we heard that Google were getting ready to launch their new NFC based payment system, Google Wallet, it is now official and as we reported previously Google wallet will be available with the Sprint Nexus S 4G.
The service works with a Citi Mastercard or a Google Prepaid Card, the Google Prepaid Card can be funded using any existing credit card, and Google has also announced that other companies including Visa, Discover and American Express are looking to join the service in the future.
We’ve been testing it extensively, and today we’re releasing the first version of the app to Sprint. That means we’re beginning to roll out Google Wallet to all Sprint Nexus S 4G phones through an over-the-air update.
You can find out more information about Google Wallet over at the Google Mobile blog.
