Google turned to its own social network (Google+) to share the good news. Users in select countries on (again) select mobile networks will be able to pay for mobile content without their credit cards thanks to the wonder of direct carrier billing (which consequently adds all purchases to your monthly phone bill). The first batch of carriers supporting the capability includes:
Germany: T-Mobile, Vodafone
US: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint
And we’re sure that’s just a start with additional markets and carriers getting the capability in the near future…
About The Author
Dusan has been using smartphones since their introduction and is now following the latest trends in the industry. The "convergence" is what he's most excited about, and writing about it is the next logical thing to do. He thinks that using a smartphone is what everyone who cares about their time should do. In addition to his interests in mobile phones, Dusan also loves to experiment with the latest web and mobile 2.0 services. The idea of accessing and managing your information from any device no matter where you are simply amazes him. Whether it's an online to-do list, note taking service or a video sharing social network, he's there to try it out. He admits though, he's still searching for the ultimate web-based organizational tool, which "sings" perfectly with the mobile PIM application. Dusan used to run SymbianWatch.com which later became part of IntoMobile. He lives in Serbia, South-East Europe, from where he edits the site on a daily basis.
