Samsung Galaxy S 4 HTC One

Google's I/O 2013 keynote may be done, but that doesn't mean that the company is done making news. The company took to its official Google Wallet Twitter account tonight to announce that the Wallet app is now available to a trio of Sprint smartphones and as well as an additional U.S. Cellular device. The list of newly-compatible Sprint consists of the Samsung Galaxy S 4, Samsung Galaxy Note II and HTC One, while U.S. Cellular's newest Wallet-capable device is its flavor of the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Sprint has preloaded Google Wallet on a number of its products in the past and was actually one of the service's first partners, so it's no surprise to see Wallet being added to more of the Now Network's hardware. It is still a welcome sight, though, especially since the products that are being added are high-profile devices like the Galaxy S 4 and One. U.S. Cellular's list of Wallet-compatible hardware is somewhat smaller, consisting of just the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Axiom, but the Galaxy Note II is a solid addition to the list.

The addition of Google Wallet support for four new devices may not seem like a huge news, but the list of Wallet-compatible hardware contains less than 20 devices, so this new quartet of products is a pretty big deal. It also feels like it's been a while since we've seen any hardware-related Wallet announcements, which makes today's news even more exciting. Here's to hoping that it's not long before we see the list of Wallet-supported products grow again.

Frank Porter
Frank Porter That's exactly why. You'll need to root your device then do some script editing in order to make your phone appear to be one that does support Wallet on it.
