Well... that didn't take long. Even though Verizon wanted to be stingy about Google Wallet on their version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it looks like the community wasn't really bothered by it all that much. At first, the modders and devs came up with a root method to get Google Wallet working, but now that an .apk file for Google Wallet was released by devs, you simply need to install, and Google Wallet will work fine on your ICS powered superphone. In fact, new users of Google Wallet will get $10 bucks from Google for free, just to get it started. It seems that Verizon banning it from their device turned out to be mostly a non-issue...
Here's a link to download the file: Google Wallet.apk
