Dark Knight app for the Apple iPhone starts as free preview and can end with you downloading the full-length film
Warner Brothers is offering two apps for the Apple iPhone, each one related to a box-office smash that it distributed. Apps for The Dark Knight and Inception are free to download onto your iPhone. The downloads start as a 5 minute preview of whichever film you select and once the preview has ended, you can make an "in-app purchase" to buy the movie.

You will be given the choice to download the movie onto your Apple iPhone ($10) or have it streamed to your phone ($12). Unlike the version of the films that you might download from iTunes, the version of the film that you purchase from the app contains some extras like the ones you might find on a DVD release of the movie. And you can watch your films on either Wi-Fi or 3G.

For Warner Brothers, distributing the two movies this way allows them to be viewed by iPhone users in 35 countries vs. the 12 that could buy them through the iTunes Movie Store. And Warner Brothers expects to release more movies as apps later this year.

Why not for Android?

This service is already available when you get that T-Mobile TV thing or whatever it is. Watching a movie on my Vibrant wasn't that great so I can't imagine it'd be better on a smaller phone.

Because android is crappy and I can't emphasize enough on this: IT'S MOTHERASS LAGGY AND SLOW.

Wait why is stream more expensive then download. If I download the movie its mine if I stream the movie im only renting. Besides the fact that I will need to pay for the bandwidth to stream said movie.... If I pay the 12 buck I expect that I can move from device to device and view the movie where ever as digital content.

Maybe they figure streaming it doesn't take up space on your phone so it should cost more? Thank God for ZumoCast...
