Nexus S 4G Update Paves the Way for Google Wallet?

nexusThe Nexus S 4G smartphone from Sprint will receive several important updates, including NFC support, on July 11, according to a screenshot unearthed by SprintFeed.

Since the Nexus S 4G was to be the first phone to support Google’s wireless mobile payment solution, Google Wallet, the fact that the device is finally getting NFC support might mean it’s time for Google Wallet to finally go live.

Google Wallet uses NFC (Near Field Communication) for contactless payments, and Google promised the first trial would be available this summer in the U.S. Google’s partners for the launch are Citi, MasterCard, First Data and Sprint.

The July 11 update to Nexus S 4G should also, among other things, bring improved Wi-Fi connectivity, speakerphone audio quality, signal acquisition, a 4G settings widget and TTY support.
