Finally! Google has released its own Google Wallet mobile payment system on Sprint Nexus S 4G smartphones.

Google Wallet, a payment system which allows users to swipe their phones to pay for products, officially went active last Monday. The service initially works for Citi MasterCards and the virtual Google Prepaid Card only, but will now be open to rival cards. Other credit cards, such as American Express, Discover, and Visa, are also releasing their NFC features in order to let banks add them to the new mobile payment system.
