Android Market to support paid apps in more countries

Android Market to support paid apps in more countries
Google's Android Market team has informed developers that it will now support paid app distribution and purchasing in more countries. The limited support of apps internationally has been one of the main gripes about the Android Market.

There are currently 14 countries with purchasing support, but only 9 (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, United States) with distribution capabilities. Many app developers have been limited by the lack of support, unable to sell their apps in the Android Market.

The email notification didn't say which countries would be added, except to say that it would be happening over the next few weeks. It also warned developers to modify the markets in which they offer the app, so that it doesn't automatically move beyond their intended scope.
