Google bringing Wallet support to all 2.3+ devices, physical card in the works?

Google bringing Wallet support to all 2.3+ devices, physical card in the works?

Google has been working to update their Wallet services, and more evidence has surfaced that caught our attention. Word on the street is that Google is working on a physical Wallet card, and of course there’s that rumored major update we heard about. The latest rumors come from the Google Wallet support page, which suggests that Google is working to bring a non-NFC version of the app to every device running Gingerbread or higher.

The idea behind the physical Wallet card is essentially that all of a user’s cards could be channeled into a single card, which could be used instead of a handful of other payment methods. The cards linked to the single Wallet card will be manageable through the updated app, all without going through the carriers. Google is taking a drastic new direction with this update, and will most likely reach a lot more users in the process.

No word on when Google will be rolling out this update, but we’re hoping it’ll come in time for the holiday season. So, who else is excited to see what they do with Wallet? Do you think it’s a good idea for them to go around the carriers like this? Drop a comment below!
