In-app purchasing on Android Market to debut next week
Next week, in-app purchasing is set to debut on the Android Market. According to the Android Developers web site, the Market is opening up to allow developers to upload and do end-to-end testing of their apps that will be using the new feature. Developers can now upload apps to the Developers Console, create a catalog of in-app products, and set the prices for them. Test accounts can be set up to make sure that all is in working order prior to the launch of in-app purchasing. Although developers can upload these apps, they cannot be published until the day that the new service debuts next week.

Developers seeking more info on how to set up in-app purchasing should click on this link. The Android Developers site says it is essential for developers to read the security guidelines and if you have an app that will take advantage of the new in-app purchasing feature, the site encourages you to upload and test it "right away".

The extending T-Mobile ad is probably the most annoying advertisement I have ever encountered. It is worse even than the ones over at Until you get rid of it I will find my phone news elsewhere. And its a good thing T-Mobile is disappearing, because this ad makes me hate them.
