The Wall Street Journal recently published an article on the future strategy of Microsoft’s cellphone development in which they revealed in the closing paragraph that Google are poised to launch their paid app market later this week.
Google, too, hosts an application store, dubbed the Android Market, for phones running its Android mobile operating system, the first of which is the G1 fromAG’s T-Mobile USA. This week Google will start allowing developers to charge for software sold through the Android Market, according to people familiar with the matter.
Given the recent RC 33 Android updates that add improved functionality to the Android Market, and more importantly remove the ‘beta’ terms – this claim doesn’t seem so far fetched.
