Google Announces New Partnership with Sprint

Internet search giant Google quietly announced yesterday a major new development in the mobile space for Android and Sprint fans.

Sprint customers in the US can now pay for all Google Play purchases directly through their phone bill.

That was the big announcement from Google this week, underscoring how Sprint Nextel can now charge all Google Play digital content purchases to their wireless bill.

Now when users go to purchase an app, they have the choice of billing the purchase to their credit card, mobile wallet, or Sprint account.

“The move,” reports Engadget, “leaves Verizon as the only major US carrier without a carrier billing option, so you’ll have to sit tight if you own the original US Galaxy Nexus and hate the thought of a separate download bill.”

Do you plan to begin charging app purchases to your Sprint bill or does the old model work better for you?
