Google has acquired a little-known Canadian startup, Zetawire, apparently aiming to use the company's NFC technologies for their mobile wallet ambitions.

Having gone up for pre-order in the UK yesterday, sales plans for the Google Nexus S in the US have been confirmed by exclusive retailer Best Buy. The unlocked Nexus S will be priced at $529, or for $199 with a two-year T-Mobile agreement (and qualifying voice and data plan), when it goes on sale come December 16.

Nexus S unboxing and hands-on

Nexus S unboxing and hands-on

Google Hotpot NFC stickers will work with Nexus S

Google is planning to use its new NFC support in Android 2.3 Gingerbread - and in the Nexus S - to allow businesses to wirelessly send information to interested would-be consumers. A trial program is kicking off in Portland, Oregon, where Google is distributing Google Places Business Kits containing NFC-enabled stickers to companies listed in their online reviews system.

The kits will also contain leaflets and guides helping businesses increase the number of reviews covering them online.
