Last week we covered Android paid app support coming to an additional 18 countries. Now Google has gone and furthered this support and users can now see paid apps in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, and Taiwan.
For users in these countries to be able to purchase apps they need to have the latest Android Market which is being pushed out now, and will reach all users by the end of this week. This update is silent, meaning that users will not see a notification or prompt to update.
For developers to make sure your apps are available in these countries, make sure you have targeted your apps to be available in “All Locations.” You can make these changes in the Android Market publisher site.
This marks even further expansion of the Android Marketplace into other countries as Android is becoming a worldwide phenomenon.
