In case you missed it, Google Wallet now available

I got an email last week saying that Google Wallet had launched.  

Strange … I thought it launched last May, but no this is not the launch.

This is take-off.

Here's what I actually received:

Google Wallet now available*

Get ready to tap, pay, and save

Google Wallet, a mobile app that makes your phone your wallet, is now rolling out through a software update to Nexus S 4G by Google, available on Sprint. Set up Google Wallet with Citi MasterCard or the Google Prepaid Card in just a few minutes.

As a thanks for your early interest, we’ll give you $10 on the Google Prepaid Card if you activate it in Google Wallet by the end of the year. You can then reload the Google Prepaid Card using any of your plastic credit cards. Google Wallet will be automatically pushed to Nexus S 4G phones on Sprint as part of a software update. You can pay with Google Wallet at thousands of merchants across the United States.

This is just the beginning for Google Wallet, so stay tuned.
