Windows Phone Store Operator Billing coming to Beeline in Russia this summer


We recently posted that global carrier VimpelCom had signed an agreement with Nokia and Microsoft for carrier billing for apps and media in the Windows Phone Store.

We are seeing the first results of this deal, as Russian subsidiary of VimpelCom, Beeline, has confirmed on Twitter that the ability to pay for apps using your phone bill will be arriving between June and July 2013.

With credit cards uncommon in Russia and Android already offering the service on the carrier, support for carrier billing is very important for a healthy app market in the region.
