Does anyone know if google was planning on releasing an compatible version of google wallet in the future or will it be native on the us lte version. This is a huger bummer if you have to root the device just to get an app that should come stock. anyway thanks for your response in advance,


Engadget Article: Google Wallet unofficially finessed into Galaxy Nexus, complete with complimentary cash -- Engadget
Yeah we've known that Google Wallet won't be coming to the GNex right away, it's just Verizon being stupid and sticking with ISIS (which will never catch on). Hopefully Verizon can come to an agreement with Google soon because the number of people who own a Sprint Nexus S 4G AND have a Citi MasterCard is about 10. lol
