On Tuesday, Google rolled out an unlocked, contract-free version of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone that will make fans of mobile payments happy. The device delivers the company’s popular and rapidly expanding Google Wallet tap-and-pay service.

“Today the unlocked Galaxy Nexus went on sale on Google Play,” reads a post on the Google Commerce blog. “This unlocked phone provides a pure Google experience offering access to the latest and greatest apps including Google Wallet.”

With the pre-installed Google Wallet app, you can make purchases and redeem offers with a tap of your phone.

But also factored into today’s announcement was the inclusion of a special offer. When you set up your Google Prepaid Card, Google says, the Internet search giant will also give you a $10 credit.

“In addition to the unlocked device,” Google reveals, “we are also excited to announce that Google Wallet is available on three new phones from Sprint, including: Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper 4G LTE and LG Optimus Elite. Google Wallet will also be available on the LG Optimus Elite from Virgin Mobile.”
