Paid Android apps reach Telus phones

updated 06:30 pm EDT, Thu March 25, 2010

Moto Milestone, Hero at Telus get paid apps

Without any noticeable fanfare, Telus today became the second Canadian carrier to get paid apps in the Android Market. Commercial apps had previously been limited to Rogers but can now be bought on devices like the HTC Hero or Motorola Milestone in all categories. Apps are sold in the currency values of the developer's home country and, without paid Canadian apps, are usually in US dollars.

A quick check hasn't confirmed that Bell subscribers using the Samsung Galaxy can download paid apps, nor whether unlocked Android phones running on Wind Mobile would get similar treatment. Paid apps have been available in the US, Europe and Japan for several months or more but have been off-limits in Canada until now.
