Google Wallet (the mobile NFC payment system by the search giants) may be set to launch today, September 19th, according to a leaked memo.
The system, which allows users to top up an NFC-enabled smartphone with pre-pay (PayPass) credit and pay for items by swiping across a compatible in-store reader, is a partnership with Mastercard that was first revealed back in May.
The September 19th date coincides with the NFC World Congress, a summit with 2,500 NFC luminaries in attendance, including John Lambert from MasterCard Europe.
With Google lining up the launch latest version of Android version, as well as the rumoured Nexus Prime handset, the timing for the Wallet launch seems perfect. We’ll have more news as this story develops.
