A Google blog has revealed details of the Android Market content distribution set-up.It described the aim of the system to ‘help end users find, purchase, download and install content using Google's expertise in infrastructure, search and relevance’.
Developers will be able to make their content available on an open service hosted by Google that features a feedback and rating system. Similar to YouTube, content can debut in the marketplace after only three steps: register as a merchant, upload and describe your content and publish it. It will also provide developers with a dashboard and analytics to help improve their offerings.
Google said the first phones will have a beta version of Android market, and at the minimum, it will support free applications. After launch, Google will work towards adding paid content. There’s no news on revenue splits.
