Google Wallet has had a rocky start since its introduction last year, with it only being officially available for Google Nexus S 4G owners on Sprint, despite other devices likes the unlocked Nexus S and the GSM and LTE versions of the Galaxy Nexus having the proper hardware support for the service. That seems to be changing, however, as the Google Wallet app is now appearing for Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus owners who are using the devices on AT&T's network.
Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus users on AT&T can now download the official Google Wallet app from the Android Market. Unfortunately, T-Mobile customers are still out of luck, it seems. Intrepid users with Verizon's LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus have discovered a work around that lets them install the official app from the Market as well.
Hopefully, this is an indication that Google intends to make Wallet more widely available and expand its footprint in the near future. [via The Verge]
