    Have any details been released on how much of a royalty Google will take? I think Apple takes 30%. I've been looking and haven't found much at all.

    Hi,

    In answer to your question, the Google's 'Android Market' store will open approx. the time the G1 is available, which is Oct. 22nd. Of course, you can get news about it (if you don't know already) at a couple of news sites I have included below:

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,
    Nikhil

    I believe Google will not take any cut of revenue (through Android Market) from it's developers. See this article:

    http://www.informationweek.com/news/internet/google/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=210605651

    BTW, the official (at least, I think it is) Android Market is up now and has a few apps listed there. I have included a link to the Android Market at the link below. Just click on the link below, and then click on 'Market' (in the bottom left corner)

    http://www.android.com/

    Another option is to go through Handango, at
    http://www.handango.com


    who will host paid apps. And I believe they do take a cut from the revenue, but I forget how much.

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,
    Nikhil

    ^You dug up a 1.5+ year old thread to ask that? What is your point?
