Android gets a new market, Flash and document editing
New stuff for Android continues to flood the space. No, there isn’t an on-screen QWERTY keyboard, at least for now. Still, those who are not satisfied with Google’s online store for mobile applications, the Android Market, might just find something that would suit their taste better. The new solution is freshly called SlideME and it also features a special app, bearing the lively name of SAM, the purpose of which is to assist you in managing and purchasing applications. Users will be able to pay with credit cards via PayPal or a SlideME MasterCard debit account. Fortunately, free apps will also be on board.

SlideME is an alternative to Android Market

Another goodie for Android users comes from the company BSQUARE, which has announced its intentions to bring Flash to the platform. There isn’t much information about this one, but the source informs that all this would happen on behalf of a “global Tier 1 carrier”.

Last but certainly not least, the much-anticipated Office document managing application DocsToGo has finally hit Android Market. The Android version of the popular program will allow for viewing, editing and creating of Microsoft Office documents. Unlike its Windows Mobile and BlackBerry variants, it currently manages only Word and Excel files. DocsToGo (Standard Edition) is compatible with Office 97-2008 documents and will be able to view and download Gmail attachments. You can get the app at an introductory price of $19.99. Its regular price will be $29.99.

Prices Suck, but I'm glad Android is getting these Apps. Now, we just need some more phones on some more carriers with Android.

get off T-Mobile and you'll have more people w/ an Android phone. T-Mobile has the worst coverage. They are only in cities and highways, anywhere is not a hit or miss, just miss.
