Google has announced an official OTA update for Sprint's HTC Evo 4G LTE that will remedy issues with Google Wallet.

Sprint customers that bought an HTC Evo 4G LTE have had issues with Google Wallet since its release, but a small update to the apps' Google Play landing page clarifies the issue, saying:

Google Wallet will be unavailable on the EVO 4G until an OTA update in July.

Currently, the app will give (most) users a message saying "Google Wallet has not yet been certified in your country or on your device / carrier." The company confirmed last month that this behavior is due to a software bug, though some enterprising users have gotten Wallet to work by tweaking the build.prop file on their phones. For those who aren't so adventurous, there are only a few more weeks left in the month, so the wait for HTC and Google's official solution shouldn't last too much longer.
