Android Market opens paid app support to a host of new countries

Google tipped us that this news was coming last week and true to their word they have brought paid Market support for both developers and users to quite an impressive list of new countries.

The full lists are available by hitting the press release button below, but for those that are just interested in the numbers I’ll give an abbreviated rundown. They have added support today for developers in 20 new countries to sell their apps on the Market, which brings that total to 29. On the user side they say that over the next two weeks 18 new countries will be added to the list of those that can buy apps from the Market.

For developer’s they want to reassure you that you don’t need to do anything to make yourself visible to the new buyers as long as you targeted your app to “All Locations” originally.

While their work is far from over this was an impressive and very important leap for the Android Market.
