Android developers allowed paid apps early next year

Google has launched the Android Market, and developers of Android applications will be able to upload their apps on Monday 27th Oct once they have wrapped up all the details such as Google requires registration along with a one time application fee of $25.00, which is to ensure developers are authenticated and responsible for their applications.

When a developer is authenticated they may upload apps for users without any more need for validation. Furthermore, come early 2009 developers will be allowed to offer android users paid apps and keep seventy percent of the revenue earned.

The remaining thirty percent will go to the carrier as Google themselves will not be taking a cut of the profits, which is a good thing for the developers.
