Google Sued For Patent Infringement Over Google Wallet

Screen Shot 2012-10-23 at 9.33.51 PMThis afternoon, Google was sued over its Google Wallet smartphone application allegedly infringing U.S. Patent No. 7,298,271 (the '271 patent) in the Federal District Court of Delaware.�According to Google, "Google Wallet is a virtual wallet that securely stores your credit and debit cards, offers, and rewards cards. You can tap your phone to pay in-store using Google Wallet anywhere contactless payments are accepted. You can pay online by signing into your Google Wallet account." �Of course, there is nothing new about payments using NFC technology, NFC has been popular in Japan for years. �What's interesting here is the actual patent being asserted against Google.
