Google Partners with AT&T Wireless, Verizon and T-Mobile USA for Wallet

Google logo 140pxIn a post on the Google Commerce Blog, Ariel Bardin, Vice President of Payments at Google, writes about a new relationship "working with AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, as well as their mobile payments company Softcard, to help more Android users get the benefits of tap and pay."

Under this relationship, the Google Wallet app, including the tap and pay functionality, will come pre-installed on Android phones (running KitKat or higher) sold by these carriers in the US later this year. We’re also acquiring some exciting technology and intellectual property from Softcard to make Google Wallet better."
Softcard commented here. Google Wallet was introduced in 2011 and offers NFC-based mobile payments at participating merchants.
