Google has confirmed that the nation’s third largest wireless provider, Sprint, has started rolling out a new feature to its Android Market users: carrier billing. Sprint will — presumably — get a small cut of the total amount spent, which will be charged to users’ monthly wireless statements. According to intel gathered by blog Android Central, corporate customers will — for obvious reasons — be automatically opted-out of the service; users that voluntarily decline access to carrier billing “will be presented with the option to bill to account but will not be able to successfully purchase using this payment option.” The rollout should be completed by tomorrow, April 14th. Sprint has yet to publicly announce the addition.
