Confirmed: Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus Will Not Receive Google Wallet App
>By James Lenhart
Future owners of the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus will not receive the Google Wallet app as Verizon has plans for a different company — Isis. It looks like you may have to reconsider if you thought you were getting a “pure” Android experience on the Galaxy Nexus.
With Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T partnering to support an NFC payment system called Isis, it really does make you wonder about Google Wallet’s future. Currently, this is the only other mainstream NFC system that people are talking about in the states, which means that Verizon is going to hold strong to their financial obligations. As far as future support, it’s really hard to say if Verizon will change their mind.
Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus 4G is the only phone that supports Google Wallet at this time. If anything changes we’ll let you know.
