Google readying Android NFC payment system with MasterCard and Citigroup?

Google is reportedly partnering with MasterCard and Citigroup on NFC payment technology, using VeriFone NFC-enabled payment terminals to turn Android handsets into electronic wallets. According to the WSJ's sources, those with Citigroup-issued debit and credit cards would be able to use a new Android app - initially for the Nexus S, but then for subsequent NFC-equipped phones - rather than their physical cards when the service launches later in 2011.

Nielsen: Android leads US smartphone segment but Google weaker than Apple & RIM

Android holds pole position in the US smartphone battle when it comes to OS marketshare, but Google is at a weaker position versus iOS and BlackBerry because it is reliant on third-party manufacturers producing devices. That's Nielsen's stance at least, going by the latest set of postpaid mobile subscribers across smartphone platforms between November 2010 and January 2011.

It's the latest jab in the ongoing war over data access between the two companies.
