More carrier billing to come to the Android Market?

For some, it's annoying that you need a Google Checkout account to buy items in the Android Market. T-Mobile allows billing charges directly to your phone bill, however, and a little note at Google's Android Developer Blog might indicate other carriers will follow suit.

You won't believe it's not broadband.The note is about changes to the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement (DDA):
In Section 13.1, “authorized carriers” have been added as an indemnified party.
The Android Market currently requires a Google Checkout account, while iTunes needs an Apple ID and a method of payment as well. Throwing it onto your wireless bill might be nice for some, but it might also lead to a surprise at the end of the month.
