Sprint Expected to Launch NFC Payments in 5 Cities May 26th
On May 26th, Google/ Sprint will be enabling NFC (near field communication) in 5 cities, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C. The only unfortunate part is that the only device that will work in these new locations is the Sprint Nexus S 4G. If you unfamiliar with NFC, it’s essentially a way to pay and receive coupons straight from your phone. Not like online buying, you take your phone and wave it over a NFC sensor and that replaces your credit/debit card. This technology is great but seems a bit ahead of our products. Some people won’t even use a computer for online banking, let alone have their phone hooked directly to their bank account. We want to hear your thoughts on Sunday – leave a comment below or on our Facebook wall.

To be honest, we don’t know much about the new Google Phone, only the way it will be sold and a few rumors. Let’s start with the facts:
Google has learned from its first phone, the Nexus One. The phone was just fine, but the sales continued to disappoint. Of course the Big G wants to do it better this time and closed an exclusive deal with Carphone Warehouse. The first Nexus was available on one carrier only, Vodafone, and it just didn’t work out. So they tried something new, being exclusively to one warehouse, Carphone Warehouse in this case. We’ll see how this will end.
And the rumor: As you could expect, this Nexus will probably be running the newest version of Android, Gingerbread, but didn’t that seem a little logical to you?
