AT&T Adds Carrier Billing For The Android Market

Eric Chu over at the Android Developer’s Blog announced today that AT&T has added carrier billing for the Android market. Now there you have more options than just Google Checkout.

Chu said “With the combination of Android Market’s new app discovery features and a carrier-backed frictionless payment method, users will find it significantly easier to discover and purchase applications of their choice.”

Customers with AT&T Android devices just simply go to the app they want in the market and in the pulldown menu at payment they will find the option to bill their AT&T account directly. If you don’t call customer service to make sure your account can handle that type of payment.

Carrier billing is currently offered by T-Mobile in addition to AT&T and Google is hopeful that more carriers will partner with them for this type of billing.
