    It actually makes perfect sense and is a good move by Verizon imo. Especially since Apples SmartPay was released two years after Google Wallet, yet has been adopted much more quickly & is actively in use by many major retailers already. Having one universal nfc payment method across all Android devices is much more practical.

    But will Samsung get on board because they were rumored to be trying to create their own wallet app.

    Verizon could've been on board with Google wallet instead of trying to force their own stuff... But i guess it's more cash for the big red machine..
