Although Google is often first at coming up with new technology, they aren’t good at promoting their new products. Geeks know about the new products offered on Android, but the average lay person doesn’t have a clue. Like NFC payments, which Google has had on Android since 2010 with Google Wallet, although only geeks knew about it because Google wasn’t very good at promoting Wallet. Now Apple comes out with their won NFC payment app and everybody thinks Apple invented NFC payments because they know how to promote their products. Let’s hope that Google has learned something from this experience.
