    Google Wallet Comes to Nexus S & Galaxy Nexus (AT&T); VZW G-Nex Unofficially Gets It


    The NFC payment system that Google is pioneering, Google Wallet, is now available on a couple of new devices. You can now get it officially on the Nexus S and the GSM Unlocked AT&T version of the Galaxy Nexus. All you have to do is download it from the Android Market and start using it. Google even gives you a free $10 bucks to get the ball rolling.

    Sadly, there is no "official" support for the G-Nex on Verizon (because Verizon wants to push their own mobile payment service); however, luckily, our beloved Android community has come up with a workaround that solves that little issue. Here's the complete instructions below:

    1. From your phone open the browser and head to http://market.android.com.
    2. Search for "Google Wallet."

    *If your browser prompts you to open the Market, donít. Just stay in the browser.

    3. When the results come back, tap on the Google Wallet icon.
    4. Tap the "Install" button from within the browser and then sign into your Google account.

    *Again, this is all from the browser, not the Market app.

    5. Once you have signed in, you should be redirected back to the Market page in the browser.
    6. Obviously, you will not have the option to install there since the VZW Nexus is not supported.
    7. Tap the back button until you are prompted for the Market or Browser again, this time choosing the Market.
    8. The Android Market should open to the Google Wallet page with an option to install.
    It's interesting to see that this Google Wallet workaround for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is so simple and doesn't require rooting or anything too complicated. Of course, it's not surprising, because you guys are awesome!

    Does anyone know why Google Wallet doesn't work on AT&T's Galaxy S III?
