Android users are up for a treat. Android handset owners connected over the AT&T network, now have the facility to mark purchases and pay via the AT&T Direct Carrier Billing. Android users can simply charge the fee directly to the AT&T bill instead of paying for the apps with a credit card.
AT&T is not the first one to introduce this mode of payment as T-Mobile has already pioneered in this arena, being the only U.S. carrier to offer carrier billing in the Android Market. AT&T users would have noticed this option appearing since a couple of days, along with a number of other improvements.
New categories have been added to the Android Market, which includes:
1. Media & Video
2. Music & Audio
Furthermore, the Android Market is now offering a 15-minute refund window for payments which further facilitates users.
