Google is putting a lot of stock into mobile payments conducted via NFC as the future of our daily transactions. For their part, they plan to debut Google Wallet with the help of a handful of retail partners. One such partner is RadioShack, and one RadioShack employee has spilled the beans on just when we might welcome the mobile payments revolution. September 1st is the date provided for the RadioShack/Google Wallet partnership to go live. Even if the date comes and goes without the ability to swipe your NFC-enabled phone at the checkout counter, the Shack is definitely preparing its employees for the launch of the service sometime soon. Now if we could just get a few more NFC handsets we might have something to work with.
