Google Wallet comes the electronic wallet

An electronic wallet contained in our smart phone, to pay in the shops at once, use coupons and keep the receipt. All with one instrument and all in digital. E 'Google Wallet, a platform to which the web giant has lifted the veil today. Was a new expectation, but now they know the details. The service will debut in the U.S.

only for now, in summer, from New York City and St. Francisco. It takes advantage of partnerships Mastercard (but will work with all credit cards), and Citigroup will work in 120 thousand shops, including the Subway fast food chain, Macy's, American Eagle Outfitters, Wallgreen's, Toys R Us.

We must have a smartphone to use Google Wallet, and initially only the Nexus S, with chip NFC (Near Field Communications). This is indeed one of the key technologies of Google Wallet, but also using the internet and GPS and is more sophisticated than other platforms NFC already operating in various parts of the world.

Recall that the ultimate concern is for Google to extend its advertising platform to the world of mobile phones.
