    The Galaxy Nexus for Verizon Wireless is the first handset to offer the Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” platform, giving you more flexibility to express yourself than ever before. Featuring the first HD Super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy Nexus delivers extreme color and clarity on a huge 4.65 inch touch screen for you to watch HD Blu-ray movies on Galaxy Nexus. 4G LTE network capabilities exhibit astounding speed and with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy Nexus is optimized for faster multitasking. However, with the access of Google Wallet on AT&T GSM Galaxy Nexus, the state of the deployment of Google Wallet for the LTE Variant on Verizon has made LTE Galaxy Nexus users quite irritated. And thanks to the Droid-Life writer Kellex, who has brought the detailed instructions and showed a video on how to install Google Wallet from Google Market on Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus.

    Galaxy Nexus Google WalletGalaxy Nexus users needed to use a Google Wallet .apk, a risky and nonofficial Google app, to install Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus last December, while AT&T Nexus users only need a AT&T SIM to use Wallet. Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus users could now install the app directly from the Android Market without flashing a zip or doing anything that a non-rooted phone could not do. Instructions showed bellow:

    1. From your phone, open the browser and head to http://market.android.com.
    2. Search for “Google Wallet.” (If your browser prompts you to open the Market, don’t. Just stay in the browser.)
    3. When the results come back, tap on the Google Wallet icon.
    4. The phone will prompt you to leave the browser and go to the Market. Choose the Market this time.
    5. You should now be sitting in the Android Market with Google Wallet up.
    6. Tap “install” and enjoy.

    If that short method is not working, here is the full method:
    Tip: You may want to clear data and defaults on browser and Market before doing this.
    1. From your phone open the browser and head to http://market.android.com.
    2. Search for “Google Wallet.” (If your browser prompts you to open the Market, don’t. Just stay in the browser.)
    3. When the results come back, tap on the Google Wallet icon.
    4. Tap the “Install” button from within the browser and then sign into your Google account. (Again, this is all from the browser, not the Market app.)
    5. Once you have signed in, you should be redirected back to the Market page in the browser.
    6. Obviously, you will not have the option to install there since the VZW Nexus is not supported.
    7. Tap the back button until you are prompted for the Market or Browser again, this time choosing the Market.
    8. The Android Market should open to the Google Wallet page with an option to install.
