Today, Visa announced that they’d be hopping on the bandwagon too, offering anyone with a Google Wallet-enabled smartphone the option to pay using their Visa card.
These two technologies allow a person to plug their credit card number into a NFC-enabled smartphone and tap it against a reader at a store or subway turnstile.
As of now, the only phone capable of using Google Wallet is Sprint’s Nexus S 4G. Google Wallet is in a trial phase in San Francisco and New York City, but plans to expand nationwide soon.
