Google Wallet intros with Sprint, Citi, MasterCard

Google at its New York City event launched Google Wallet as the first major NFC mobile payment system in the US.

It ties in directly with Google Offers and can give offers based on the phone's location, deals pushed from the web, and NFC tags built into posters and other ads.
