Since I’m short on time, I’m just going to quote the story I wrote for MobileBurn.com. Here it is:
During a keynote at Open Mobile Summit today in San Francisco, T-Mobile USA CTO Cole Brodman talked of some of his company’s plans for the Google Android smartphone platform. The most interesting piece of information that Brodman revealed is that T-Mobile will launch carrier billing for the Android Market on its smartphones later this month. This will allow customers to have Android Market purchases charged directly to their T-Mobile phone bills. He also said that the carrier will begin offering its own channel on the Android Market app store that will be called, fittingly, the T-Mobile Channel.
