Android developers will now be able to trek the road to riches thanks to Google allowing the sale of applications in its Android App Market. Users of the Android powered mobile operating system will be able to download all software for free until sometime during Q1 2009. Developers will also be glad to know that they will keep 70 percent of the revenue they gather. The other 30 percent will go towards carriers and billing settlement fees. Not everyone will be able to provide paid apps right out of the gate with the exception of the United States, UK, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, Italy, and Spain. Support for developers in other countries won't happen until the end of the first quarter. We have already seen how consumers have downloaded both free and paid applications for their devices. From the useful to the useless, there will always be that one person that purchases that one software out of curiosity.
