Google seems to be poised to release Google Wallet -- the search giants' NFC payment technology -- on the world. This could mean that we'll see Google Wallet by the end of July, however Google is yet to make an official comment on the matter. Currently, the Nexus S is the only device that will be supported for Google Wallet upon launch, with other Android devices to be added over time.
A leaked internal slide from Sprint reveals new features coming to the Sprint's Nexus S 4G -- build GRJ90 should bring a WiMAX settings widget, TTY support, and both "improved Wi-Fi connectivity" and "signal acquisition," among other things.
The features are listed as:
Enables the NFC Secure Element
4G Settings Widget
NI Push Support
Improved WiFi Connectivity, Speakerphone audio quality, 4G throughput and signal acquisition.
Tuned signal strength indicators.
SprintFeed's leak indicates an initial rollout to Nexus S 4G customers starting next Monday, July 11th, with the full subscriber base coming on board over the course of four days.
The deployment of the update will be spaced over a four day period, with 5% of customers on day 1, 25% for the next 2 days, then available for 100% of customers four days in. The update will be OTA, and sports the version number GRJ90.
