Google Android observers are venturing the opinion that premium, paid for, Apps will be made available for all Android users sometime this week. As T-Mobile is releasing the RC33 software update for the mobile phone, the Wall Street Journal commented that, "This week Google will start allowing developers to charge for software sold through the Android Market, according to people familiar with the matter."
According to the Intomobile website, this comment has sparked speculation that, once the update has had time to infiltrate the Android user base, then that will be the time to make the ‘paid for App' announcement.
Many Android experts believe that the support of paid Apps will give the entire Android market a boost. Small, independent, developers will see the mobile phone as a viable business opportunity which will increase the core quality of the App software itself, which will then stretch the features of the phone to new heights. That's the theory, at least.
