Awesome post. Along with tying up with Airtel and Vodafone, they have also teamed with Reliance for operator billing and In-App purchase. This surely makes it easier fir consumers to purchase items without hesitation as no credit card details are required to be filled up. Plastic money is not used so freely in India right now, exploiting this seeming factor is a good move by all 4 especially Nokia. They are also offering developers 70% of End User price for all apps they submit as a part of their strategy.
