Sprint's HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung GALAXY Note II get Google Wallet
Earlier on Wednesday, we told you that Google had added Google Wallet capabilities to Gmail. This puts Mountain View in the highly lucrative business of shuffling OPM around, taking a small slice of the moola as it goes from person to person. It's a great business to be in, especially since Google is already in the business of sending messages via Gmail. If you're going to send messages, might as well send messages with money attached! Send enough of those transactions a day, and pretty soon you're talking about some real money here.

Speaking of money, Google Wallet is now available for the Sprint variant of the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and the Samsung GALAXY Note II. The U.S. Cellular version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II will also support the app.

The process is rather simple. If your phone supports Google Wallet, head to the Google Play Store and download the app. You can put any credit card from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover in your virtual wallet. Then, when it comes time to pay, select the card you are going to you, tap the POS (point of sale) device with your phone, and the bill is paid via NFC. Nothing too magical or mysterious here.

Well I have hardware in my VZW GN2, now I just need a modded version of the software that I'm confident some developer will put together for other carriers offering the same supported devices.

Anyone get this to work? I am still not seeing Google Wallet in the Play Store on my HTC One.
