Da oggi anche in Italia sono disponibili le applicazioni a pagamento per Android.
In questo periodo inoltre verranno aggiornati i dispositivi consumer alla versione di Android 1.5, Cupcake.
Ecco l’email completa che ho ricevuto:
I’m writing to let you know that priced applications are now available in
Android Market for users in France, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands.
You can target one or more of these countries in the publisher website at
http://market.android.com/publish by selecting the individual checkboxes
or by choosing “All Current and Future Locations,” which will make your
priced apps appear to users in all countries where priced apps are
available. Priced applications are now available to users in eight
countries: United States, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the
Netherlands, and Austria.
We have also added seller support for developers from Germany, France,
Spain, the Netherlands, and Austria. Developers from these countries can
now go to the publisher website to publish their priced applications.
Google Checkout serves as the payment and billing mechanism for Android
Market in all countries. Developers who do not already have a Google
Checkout merchant account can easily sign up for one via the publisher
website. Developers can find more information about priced applications
in Android Market at http://market.android.com/support/.
Finally, we want to let you know that carriers are starting to update
existing devices and deploy new devices with Android 1.5, the latest
version of the platform. Over the next few weeks, the percentage of
devices running Android 1.5 will increase as devices get updated to the
latest version of Android. Android users in the United States will begin
to have their devices updated to 1.5 from the end of this week. We
recommend that you first focus on future proofing your 1.1 apps by testing
with the latest Android SDK so that your apps can work on both Android 1.1
and 1.5 devices. We will provide more information when the majority of
users have migrated their devices to Android 1.5 to help you with your app
Thanks, and we look forward to continue working with you on Android
