Google Android may be the fastest growing mobile platform both for smartphone users and app developers, but the platform was kind of crippled until recently by the fact that users in only a handful of countries were able to purchased paid apps from the Android Market. Things were even worse for developers, who had to live one of an even smaller number of countries if they wanted to be able to charge fro their apps.
Today Google has announced that it’s expanding both the number of countries where developers can sell apps as well as the number of countries where users can purchase paid apps. The list still isn’t all-inclusive, not by a longshot. But it looks like Google is moving in the right direction.
All told, developers in 29 countries can now sell their apps in the market, while users from 32 countries can purchase apps. The complete list is available from Google.
