Google Demonstrates Google Wallet, Mobile Payment App [googleblog.blogspot.com]
|Today in our New York City office, along with Citi, MasterCard, First Data and Sprint, we gave a demo of Google Wallet, an app that will make your phone your wallet. You’ll be able to tap, pay and save using your phone and near field communication (NFC). We’re field testing Google Wallet now and plan to release it soon. |
Google Wallet is a key part of our ongoing effort to improve shopping for both businesses and consumers.
