[Updated] Want Google Wallet On Your T-Mobile Or AT&T Nexus S? Flash This Mod, Courtesy Of XDA

A couple of weeks ago, the whole tech world was abuzz with the official launch of Google Wallet, a revolutionary new service that looks to replace your tired old credit cards in lieu of your Android-powered smartphone. As great as that sounds, there is one small  problem: it's only officially available on one device - the Nexus S 4G on Sprint.

While NFC hasn't been widely adopted in the smartphone market yet, the NS4G wasn't even the first device to pack the appropriate hardware -- it was actually T-Mobile's Nexus S (which is the same as AT&T's Nexus S).

[Deal Alert] Unlocked Samsung Nexus S i9020T For $350 From Daily Steals

In a world of dual-core superphones, there is still one single-core device that manages to stand its ground: the Samsung Nexus S. Thanks to its stock Android nature, the Nexus S is still one of the best Android phones on the market, and if you're looking to pick one up off-contract, then here's the deal for you. You can grab an unlocked version of the NS for a mere $350 -- that's fifty-percent off the retail price.

AT&T Brings Back 2010, Announces The Samsung Nexus S

In a move that feels oddly reminiscent of Verizon announcing the iPhone (read: announcing a nearly year old device), AT&T just told the world that it would be getting the Samsung Nexus S, which is immediately available for pre-order from Best Buy for $99 with a two-year agreement.

This version of the Nexus S is lacking HSPA+, which makes it exactly like the T-Mobile version that landed in December of last year. Don't get me wrong - the Nexus S is a good phone, and the only device currently on store shelves that runs pure vanilla Gingerbread, but I just find it a bit hard to get excited about a device that's already been on the market for quite a while.

  • 5MP 3D Capable rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0

As the follow up to the super-popular EVO 4G, it not only packs a harder punch under the hood, but also includes some groundbreaking features like Sense 3.0 and the inclusion of both 3D playback and video capture.

  • 512MB RAM
