    I got an email tip that Paid Android Apps were hitting the Android Market about 30 minutes ago. With my G1 in front of me I looked for myself… nothing. But it seemed blogs around the interwebz were reporting the same thing from readers writing in but the bloggers themselves? Nothing. I was lucky enough to [...]

    According to Android they were suppose to hit the market MID WEEK. It is late Thursday night and nothing yet.... Was getting a bit worried.

    Nice to see some people might be getting. I did get an e-mail on Friday, (yes FRIDAY) of last week from someone stating they had "early" access from the store a liked one of my games.

    So what you might be seeing is NOT an early roll out. Just some select "beta" user to test the systems?

    That is what I would assume.

    Had them since yesterday afternoon. There's also now an option to sort to just show paid apps or just show free apps.

    I see apps in both $ and a few in British Pounds! Interesting they don't convert it for local currency.

    For all those that SEE the Paid Apps.

    What part of the World are you from and what type of Phone/service are you using?

    Interesting to see who has and who doesn't.

    Right now I am from the US (East Coast) and am using an Android Developer phone via WiFi and connect to APP market and do NOT see anything about Paid apps.

    Midwest, wifi and 2g (3g off), seeing them. One more thing to note...sort by paid apps, cause clearly the market is sorting by date submitted NOT by today's date going live. There are many paid apps sprinkled in the mix far, far back (likely earlier in the week or even before that.)

    I have seen "sales" come rolling in. So I assume some people have the paid apps.

    Nothing on my end yet. I also do see a sort of Paid Apps.

    Where do you see the feature to sort Free and Paid apps?

    I think I might know my problem. I have an Android Developer phone with the 1.0 OS. Any clue how I update a Developer Phone to the new 1.1?

    No 3G in North Carolina, but I got paid apps now. Seems kinda random as to what phones are getting them.
