Google now accepting paid apps in Android Market

Chris Ziegler

If you've been looking to make a little bank off that awesome flatulence soundboard you put together for the G1, take heart: Google's ready for you. As expected, it's been announced that developers can now submit end-user pricing for applications in the US version of the Android Market, with Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, France, and Spain coming later in the quarter. It's no big surprise that Google Checkout is the only form of payment accepted, which publishers can sign up for right from the dev site. As for you Yanks, look for the first paid apps to be available for download in the middle of next week.

Update: We've just gotten official word from T-Mobile that the G1's RC33 build -- which has just been rolled out to owners -- contains paid app support. Thumbs-up for spending money!
