Android Market loves capitalism

Android Market loves capitalism
Oh Google, you just get it. Plans for the Android Marketplace were revealed today, and it will be free and open to any developer. Like the App Store it will be a single portal for Android add-ons, but without the mystifying application and approval process. Developers simply need to register, upload the app and write a description; users will be able to rate apps and give feedback YouTube style. The Market will be available in Beta form on the Dream and initially support only free apps, but as it moves to final there will be both paid and free content.

The only use of this is to bring WM apps to an orderly place to search and download. The app store works for iPhones cus it is THE only place to get app (unless it is jailbroken), but you can download WM apps anywhere on the internet, regardless of whether it is easily accessible.

Um, can't you read? this is for ANDROID, WM has nothing to do with it.

Exactly. Windows Mobile phones MAY begin to use the Android platform, but Android wasn't made for Windows Mobile.

dude #15 do you even know what your speaking about? Android is an actual operating platform is not a WM Plugin of somesort like you think it is. I sometimes wonder if people even read what they say. "but Android wasn't made for Windows Mobile." huh!? lol amazing.

You got to laugh at the image next to the post. As they say many a truth is told in jest. Apple is a draconian commie corporation.

Apple IS ran like a communist country. Have you ever noticed the Cadre that support their products no matter how many flaws they have, and how they all goose step and parrot the same party line. I have never understood that Jobs has escaped the evil category that Gates has been placed in. Apple demands total domination of all products and squeezes every last red cent out of suppliers and the sweat shops they run to get the Evil Jobs more $$ to live his lavish lifestyle. OMIDGOD, that sounds like the trash they have been spreading about Bill Gates.

I don't really agree with their methods, but the iphone is apple's product, and they can do whatever they want with it. They want to make as much profit as possible by seriously controlling its device. But it seems like its working out pretty well for them.

Can't stand the shape of the dream. The bottom part of it makes me feel like its a sidekick or something. It would have been perfect for a full touch screen with the 5 QWERTY keyboard. The Android OS seems pretty cool tho. I'm sure there will be tons of great apps. Hopefully it comes out soon.

RE: To #12. Yeah they slander the crap out of Bill, but at least he donates a lot of his money and time to those less fortunate. Do you ever hear of Steve Jobs doing anything like this? At least not that I've heard of.

Every one acknowledges that today's life seems to be expensive, but people require money for various things and not every one earns enough money. Thence to get quick personal loans or just term loan will be a proper solution.
