Verizon Wireless issued a statement today in response to reports that the Google Wallet application is being blocked on the Galaxy Nexus by the carrier. "Google Wallet is different from other widely-available m-commerce services," explained Verizon Wireless spokesperson Jeffrey Nelson. "Google Wallet does not simply access the operating system and basic hardware of our phones like thousands of other applications. Instead, in order to work as architected by Google, Google Wallet needs to be integrated into a new, secure and proprietary hardware element in our phones. We are continuing our commercial discussions with Google on this issue." Sources at Google confirmed to several publications on Monday that the mobile payment application would not be installed on the Galaxy Nexus at Verizon's request.
