Google Wallet Updated – Sprint Shows It Off On Galaxy Nexus [Video]


Google Wallet was updated a few days ago bringing about the usual bug fixes and it seems Sprint was so excited about the news, they’ve uploaded a quick little how-to video on their YouTube showing off exactly what you can do with the Google Wallet and… what’s this? The Galaxy Nexus? Sweet mother of gawd.

Still with no solid release date, we’ve all been scratching our heads on exactly when we can expect the Galaxy Nexus on Sprint. The only thing holding back the device now could be Sprint’s testing of their 4G LTE network so lets hope it’s sooner than later.

At Mobile World Congress, Sprint also revealed that the G-Nex wouldn’t be the only device on their network to take advantage of NFC and Google Wallet, apparently, the carrier has 10 new devices planned for this year with built-in NFC capabilities, starting with the LG Viper. Once again, no release dates were given but it’s nice to see something is brewing over at ‘ol Sprint HQ. Think I’ll stick around for a little longer. Google Wallet/Galaxy Nexus video below.

Thanks, Tommy! :)

  6. I’ve officially made the jump to Verizon, well i’ve been using the service for 2 months now, but i’ve bought a Galaxy Nexus VZ version(no contract, straight cash) to replace my Droid Charge, I’m gonna quit Sprint.

  15. As a Sprint customer, the GN doesnt catch my attention. HTC One X !

  16. DAMN U SPRINT. I’m never going to get the NEXUS it will come to AT&T LAST.

  17. Not cool Sprint, I want my G-Nex and I want it now! If they’re showing it off, I’m sure it’s right around the corner. Hopefully it happens by early April.

  18. Meh, if this was 6 months ago I would be all for it. But too many better phones coming to sprint now. No need to upgrade to last years hardware. Rumors of SGS3 in april, and One X possibly June…..No thanks!!!
