Google Wallet launching today
Google announced Google Wallet a few months ago, an NFC-based payment system ready to work with Ice Cream Sandwhich.
Today, Techcrunch has just released an image of some internal documentation indicating an official launch for the service for today, September the 19th.
Google Wallet, which has already been demonstrated to work on a Nexus S 4G to purchase pants from American Eagle, is hoped to introduce NFC payments to mainstream consumers, much like the NFC aspects of the Barclaycard contactless payment system in the UK.
Google’s grand plan is that your Android phone will become your new wallet, this is likely to also be included as a feature of the next iPhone, the iPhone 5.
Tthe launch of Google Wallet today will also align itself with the start of the NFC World Congress in France. Which intends to further the development of NFC markets.
