Re: Google Wallet launched in United States

The Google Nexus S is one of the first smartphones (Nokia has since thrown in the towel a little about the NFC) to integrate this technology already, which is being tested in some French cities for over a year. Google Wallet will be available as an Android application 2.3.4 (and IOS, we imagine). Google has also planned a meeting at the NFC World Congress. This appointment may be an opportunity for Google to officially launch its service.
