Google Wallet cranks up the advertising machine

by: nathanAugust 22, 2012
Paypal took the world by storm years ago and hasn't decreased its dominance ever since. A handful of players have entered the mobile payment game, but Google Wallet has been the only one that's really threatened to be competition. With the advent of new mobile payment apps now becoming a hot convenience item, the big G-Dub is certainly paying its cards right.

Google Wallet now works on Verizon Galaxy Nexus, lets you add any credit cards

by: Bams SadewoAugust 3, 2012

Even though the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be a pure Google device, Verizon couldn’t help putting some extra touches, including preventing the Google Wallet from running on the phone. It didn’t exactly stop creative folks from coming up with a workaround, though. However, the days of tinkering are over, as Google Wallet is now officially compatible with Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Several users have reported that they have successfully downloaded and installed Google Wallet on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus – without any tinkering. So if you happen to do a search on the app at Google Play, you should no longer see the Verizon Galaxy Nexus listed as [...]

Google Wallet can now add any credit card or debit card

by: LucianAugust 1, 2012

Google Wallet promised to replace physical wallets with a virtual wallet that can be accessed from your Android phone. However, the momentum has been slow in the U.S. because carriers are trying their best to avoid using it on the handsets they sell, because they are preparing their own competing solution called Isis. The only carriers in the U.S. that have been friendly to Google Wallet are Sprint and Virgin Mobile, which have adopted a total of six Google Wallet-enabled phones. The Nexus 7 tablet also comes with Google Wallet support.

Google Wallet has also experienced some security issues initially, and Verizon has even claimed that the [...]

Verizon Galaxy S3 does run Google Wallet via hack [video]

by: Chris SmithJuly 31, 2012

Google Wallet is Google’s own NFC-based mobile payment system, which should have taken off by now, at least according to the Search giant’s wishes. However, that’s not exactly the case, and Google is still struggling to make the payment method popular with the crowds.

It definitely doesn’t help to have to fight against three of the four main U.S. mobile operators – Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile – which are working on their own mobile payment operation called ISIS. That means Android handsets launched by these three carriers do not come with Google Wallet on board, which is quite a hassle for Android users that want to use the [...]

Google sends software update to Nexus 7 to enable Google Wallet

by: Bams SadewoJuly 18, 2012

The privy few who own a Nexus 7 got a surprise from Google yesterday, as a new small-ish update was pushed to the tablet. Thankfully, it’s not that dumbed down search feature that other high-profile Android devices were getting, but it’s just a little something that allows you to tap, pay, and save with the Google Wallet app on your Nexus 7.

You don’t think Google has embedded an NFC chip in the 7-incher for kicks, do you? Well, with the activated Google Wallet feature, you can now pay for those potato chips by pulling out the Nexus 7 out of your bag and doing some wireless payment magic – unlike regular folks who have to open their wallet and use physical money. So [...]

Save to Wallet feature for Google Wallet also introduced at Google I/O

by: Chris SmithJuly 1, 2012

While we focused mostly on the announcements related to Google’s new flagship products during and after Google I/O – Google Nexus 7 and on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – these weren’t the only new things that came out of the developer conference.

In our initial Google I/O preview, we said we expected Google to unveil its rumored Google Wallet 2.0 mobile payment solution, especially considering that Apple has just announced a new iOS app called Passback, which could the company’s first steps into this business, not to mention that Microsoft unveiled a Wallet Hub of its own for Windows Phone 8, an app that can do more than just safeguarding [...]

Google Wallet on Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE functioning once more?

by: Bams SadewoJune 27, 2012

Google Wallet isn’t ready yet for primetime on the HTC EVO 4G LTE. That much has been admitted by Google. But it’s not after owners of the phone had to find out the hard way. We could just picture that awkward moment when there’s a long line forming behind as you try to pay for a packet of gums, while the phone could only muster up an error message that says: “Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device/carrier.”

It seems whatever software glitches that plagued Google Wallet app on the EVO 4G LTE has been fixed. Phandroid has received multiple reports from readers who said that they can run the app perfectly. Adding card information and [...]

Google I/O 2012 preview – what is Google going to unveil?

by: Chris SmithJune 25, 2012

This year’s edition of Google’s annual developer conference takes place in San Francisco during June 27-29, a bit later than in previous years, when Google I/O was held at some point in May. Nevertheless, Google I/O 2012 is going to be quite interesting as we expect to see plenty of announcements during the keynotes.

We think we have a pretty good idea of what to expect this week from Google’s event, and we’re about to share it with you.

Google Nexus 7

We have exclusively confirmed a few weeks ago during Computex that Google’s first Nexus-branded tablet, and first Android tablet ever, will be made by Asus. Moreover, we have seen [...]

How it Works: NFC (near field communication)

by: Chris SmithJune 25, 2012

In our fourth edition of the “How it Works” series, we’re going to talk about NFC, or near field communication, a technology that’s being adopted by more and more smartphone and tablet makers and mobile operators.

When talking about NFC use in the mobile ecosystem, you’re going to hear the term paired with mobile payments most of the time, because that may be one of its most important uses in the future. But there are other NFC uses on mobile devices you should be aware of, some of which are already available to Android device owners.

What is NFC?

So you know what NFC stands for, but what is it really about and how does it work? Near field communication, is a [...]
