Google Wallet: 9 Things You Need To Know About Google's Newest Product

Posted: Updated:

On Thursday, Google announced the release of Google Wallet, a product that will allow customers to use chip-enabled mobile phones to pay for products at retail locations around the world.

From The Huffington Post's Amy Lee:

Google Wallet will launch this summer, in partnership with Citibank, Mastercard, Sprint, First Data and a slew of stores. The Wallet, an app for smartphones, will use Near Field Communication (NFC) technology so that users can pay just by waving their phones over a terminal when they pay. At the same time, Google will continue rolling out Google Offers, which offers users a way to find and use coupons.
