Google Android to cut a fairer deal for developers?
Most are aware of the success of the Apple App Store as it has definitely become a huge hit with the consumer, however with the developers it may not be such a hit, probable due to Apple’s gagging clause.
However, Google’s Andy Rubin is apparently promising a different, more respectful relationship with application developers for Google’s Android Market.
Rubin indicates the Market will enable free download trials, that’s something Apple’s App Store doesn’t allow and refuses to add. And also said downloads would not be subject to bandwidth caps.
With T-Mobile levying $2 per month on developers of free applications who are expected to use more than an allotted 15MB of data per user per month. Can’t be a bad deal can it?
Will this be enough to tempt developers away from the Apple iPhone?
