Google Wallet launched nationwide on Monday, but it looks like the service is still not available to everyone yet – and no we’re not talking about consumers who don’t have a Nexus S 4G on Sprint. Despite the small number of users to rollout Google Wallet to (the Nexus S 4G isn’t exactly the hottest selling handset around), it’s been confirmed by Google and Sprint that the app still hasn’t been installed on many phones on launch day.
While they didn’t mention the number of phones that got the OTA update for Google Wallet, they did promise that all Nexus S 4G users will receive the update with Google Wallet by the end of the week. It sure sounds like Google could have pulled off a better launch, seeing how there isn’t exactly a huge demand for Google Wallet at the moment, not forgetting the lack of supported devices at launch as well. Even a large number of Android phones that have been recently released don’t support NFC.
How many of you have managed to setup a Google Wallet account and have tested it out? Do let us know what you think of it so far.
