It gives Android devices another advantage as Apple refuses to allow real money gambling via its App Store

Owners of Android smartphones will soon be able play poker for real money after a tie-up between Google and Full Tilt Poker.

The search engine, which owns the Android mobile platform, is thought to have struck a deal with Full Tilt to enable players to use their existing poker accounts on devices running Android 2.2.

The new innovation was revealed in an email sent to Full Tilt's exclusive 'Black Card' members in which they were invited to take part in a beta launch of a real money gaming application later this year.

The groundbreaking app will be based on Full Tilt's popular 'Rush Poker' format, in which players can fold hands immediately and move straight to another table to be dealt back into the action.

Not surprisingly, it will be called 'Rush Poker Mobile'.

It gives Android devices, which are now outselling iPhones in the United States, another sales advantage -  Apple refuses to allow real money gambling via its App Store.

According to the email, which you can see above, the following mobile devices will support the app: Acer Liquid Stream S110, HTC Desire, HTC Droid Incredible, HTC EVO 4G, HTC Google Nexus One, HTC Desire HD, Motorola Droid 2 (& X & Droid 2 World Edition) and the T-Mobile G2.

UPDATE: Full Tilt Blogger Dave McCarthy, who was involved in the testing process, has made a video about the Android app. You can watch it here
