Hey AAW Crew,
I don't recall who mentioned this but in regards to carrier billing in the Android Market place this is actually available. I use a Samsung Galaxy S (Vibrant) on T-mobile and I've personally purchased apps from the Android Marketplace using the carrier billing option. Just wanted to let you guys know, but I'm sure many others already have. Love the show and keep it up.
Thanks,
Marq
