T-Mobile to Provide Android App Rentals

With millions of apps available, just a few screenshots and a short description may not be enough to say that they are worth the purchase. This is not a n issue when it comes to free apps, but if an app requires you to shell out some money, then there lies the problem. Some app stores have managed to solve this by test-driving apps, but T-Mobile has decided to take a notch higher by allowing apps to be rented.

T-Mobile, in cooperation with gaming company WildTangent, will provide 25-cent game rentals to all subscribers with an Android tablet or smartphone. It is a cheap way of testing an app before deciding whether to download it. The service will deduct the rental cost from the price of the app should you choose to purchase it.

There is no word yet on when this service will be launched.
