There's just something about plastic, isn't there? While Google tried to convince the world that we could all pay for everything using only our mobiles, the harsh reality is that we're still probably many, many years out from that being possible. In the interim, it looks as if Google's planning to bridge the divide with a Google Wallet card. While rumored earlier in the year, now the company's own support pages are starting to mention the heretofore unannounced product by name, noting that "all Android devices with an operating system of Android 2.3.3 or higher are eligible to download the Google Wallet app for use with the Google Wallet card." There's still no word on what the thing will look like, where you'll be able to get one, or when you'll be able to stuff it between that aging Cheesecake Factory gift card and your expired AAA membership, but you can bet we'll be keeping an eye out.
