Well, Android has finally made its way into international markets in a big way, and now offers the ability to buy apps to users in 18 more countries, including India - starting today. So, now you can log on to the Android Market with your smartphone, and use your credit card to purchase apps via Google Checkout. Prices are visible in rupees. For now, no operator billing support has been provided.
