Google confirmed to CNET that its Google Wallet mobile payment service will not be included on the Galaxy Nexus, which is due to launch on Verizon's network later this month. "Verizon asked us not to include this functionality in the product," a Google spokesperson told CNET. Google Wallet is available on the Nexus S, and lets users make payments from their phones based on near-field communications technology at participating retailers. Google did not provide a reason for Verizon's request, but Verizon is a primary member of the Isis joint venture with AT&T and T-Mobile USA. Isis is a competing mobile payment service that aims to bring a different type of NFC-based payments to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless devices. Isis has yet to launch, though Google Wallet is available in a handful of markets.
