Honestly, who couldn’t use more Android apps?
Welcome to all those countries that can now sell apps on the Android Market. There are now 29 countries total where developers can accept payments in the Android Market. Prior to this, developers in only 9 countries championed the ability to sell their apps on the Market. With about 195 countries worldwide, a good 15% now have this capability. These newcomers include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Sweden and Taiwan.
In the next few weeks we will also welcome users from 18 countries that will at last be able to access and purchase Android apps on their cell phones through the Market. These novices include the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel, Norway, Portugal and Singapore.
The Android Market, announced in August 28, 2008 and made accessible to purchase from on October 22, 2008, is gaining on their very big competitor, Apple (although both companies deny viewing each other as competitors). The Android is climbing the charts when it comes to market share and is soon to reach the 100,000 apps mark. Unlike its very big competitor, Android apps aren’t required to be purchased from the Android Market but can be purchased from any source including the developer’s own website.
