If only the story ended here. But it didn't as soon the HTC EVO 4G LTE returned a message that "Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device / carrier," leading many to believe that the service was done for. But there is now speculation that Google is merely working on a "fix" for the software and has decided to lock down Google Wallet in the meantime.
The problem here is one of timing. Can we really believe that this problem with Google Wallet is happening coincidentally after leaks about Sprint 'Touch'? If this is just a matter of bad timing, we should eventually see Google sending out an software update to make the necessary repairs. Otherwise, it would seem to be one wallet that is permanently closed.
