02/02/2012, Sprint’s Nexus S 4G is currently the only handset to officially support the Google Wallet service, and this has certainly been a sore point of contention for folks who own the newer Galaxy Nexus.

12/07/2011, We have heard our fair share of news about Google Wallet including Google themselves confirming that the Galaxy Nexus will not be receiving the Google Wallet service at all.

11/28/2011, Google’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus from Samsung, does not come with Google Wallet, an NFC-based payment service which Google announced to the world just a few months ago.
