If you believe that the NFC standard of paying is indeed the future, services such as Google Wallet is one that is probably familiar to you. Unfortunately Google Wallet has yet to be made universal for all Android devices, which means that unless you’re using a specific Android phone such as Sprint’s Nexus S, you might be out of luck if you wanted Google Wallet functionality. Kind of makes you wonder why higher end Android devices such as the One X or the recently launched Galaxy S3 have been left out of the fun, right? Well the good news is that if you’re using a Galaxy S3, a developer has managed to hack Google Wallet onto the device. It will require that you have some knowledge of flashing and will also require a rooted Galaxy S3, so if you’re not too sure what both of those things are, perhaps you might be better of waiting for an official release (if it is ever made). However for the more tech savvy, or for the more adventurous, the download and instructions can be found at the XDA forums, so pop on over for the details.
