This week, game network WildTanget announced it will soon be testing out a subscription game rental service on T-Mobile’s Android phones and tablets. Instead purchasing a game to keep, users will be offered the opportunity to rent a game for the day, for as little as 25 cents. If they end up liking the game and decide to buy, they’ll be able to apply the rental fee towards the full purchase price of the mobile application.
Will this encourage Android’s notoriously penny-pinching users to open up their wallets? Or is a mistake to think that pricing alone is what’s keeping Android users from buying apps in large numbers? Let us know what you think in this week’s ReadWriteMobile poll.
