Google Wallet questions

Recommended Posts

With the recent launch of Google Wallet in the US, from my understanding it's only available so far on the Google Nexus w/ ICS. Will you be able to use Google Wallet with say, the Galaxy S2 or is it a hardware restriction as well?


I figured it would work via Bluetooth or WiFi but I'm not sure. I would like to be able to use it when/if it becomes available in Canada.

Google Wallet relies on a technology called NFC or Near Field Communication. So far, they actually have to include an NFC chip on the device's battery in order to use it. So they may be able to do it in the future, but yes it would require some sort of hardware upgrade.
