Google wants to help shoppers leave their wallets -– which are often bursting with a deck of credit cards --at home.

In its New York City offices this week, the world's most popular search engine offered a demonstration of Google Wallet, a mobile app that aims to transform your phone into your wallet. Such an app, which the company is currently field testing, could help expedite the sea change bubbling in how people shop and pay for goods. The company plans to release the app soon.

What makes Google Wallet a debut to watch for is that the company has partnered with some major credit card providers and retailers to support its launch.
