Report: PayPal Payments Coming Soon to Android Market

According to a Bloomberg report on Friday, Ebay’s PayPal is in talks with Google about adding its payment service to Android devices.  If the negotiations go as Google is planning, PayPal could be available for the Android Market by the end of the year, perhaps the Fall. This is great news for users as a chief complaint about purchasing Android apps is that customers must have a Google Checkout account.
PayPal is already available as an application for accepting and making mobile payments on several mobile platforms, including Android (the application just received a big upgrade).  Both Google and PayPal declined to comment on the report.

Overall, we all love options. Combine that with the popularity of Paypal, and this sounds like a fantastic idea. What do you think? Would you use PayPal to purchase apps? Let us know below!
