Google Nexus Plus: Somewhat of a Reality?

When I say Nexus Plus, you know I mean Nexus+. We've got a rumor here published by one above-average unbelievable source, that being a "G00gle Plus" account on Facebook that publishes information like a real source only to get followers - and heck, why not? Such things can be fun, right? Only here's the catch: their newest update has some really REALLY juice information you'll not be able to get anywhere else, it's no copied-down watered-down re-release like the rest of their statuses. This newest status says they've seen the newest Google Nexus device, and they're saying that this "Nexus 3 (name not finalized)" will have "the special one click sharing button for Google+."

Google Wallet on Android: iOS and Windows Phone Must Be Next

On May 26th, 2011, Google announced a partnership with financial groups Citi, MasterCard, and First Data, mobile networks like NXP, Sprint, and Samsung (the last two obvious since their hero device in this project is the Nexus S 4G,) and retail locations like American Eagle, Subway, and Macy's.

This project is an NFC-based and will rely on several factors to be successful: the participation of major businesses, the ability to have manufacturers add compatible NFC chips to handheld devices, and the confidence of the population Google hopes will adopt the system.
