Google Wallet Hits The Market
Visa, Discover and American Express and many other cards will be added to the service later on. Previously, the news said that all those users who want to use the Google Wallet in their non NFC (Near Field Communication) phones will be getting an NFC sticker that will make their smartphones compatible. In the official launch, however, Google has not discussed anything about the NFC sticker. So far, the user is required to have Sprint nexus S 4G Smartphone to take advantage of Google Wallet. This is perhaps not a very smart way to launch such an interesting app, but we hope it comes to other smartphones as soon as possible.
Among those merchants who are currently swiping the smartphones with Google Wallet are American Eagle Outfitters, Bloomingdales, Foot Locker, Jamba Juice, Macy's, RadioShack, Subway, Toys "R" Us, and Walgreens. Many more merchants will be added in the list in the near future.
Do you think it is going to be a big hit? It will only if it comes to a larger number of smartphones, rather than only one. We're very interested in your views about the official launch.
