Last time it was a hoax by Google accidentally adding Australia instead of Austria, but today they have officially announced via the Android Developers Blog that 20 more countries can now submit paid applications, one of those countries being us!

For the full list of supported countries see: http://market.android.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=150324

Oh, and that should mean that Aussie developers can buy the Nexus One through Google (and actually get it delivered to Australia).

Can we get someone to try this

The Nexus One is available for sale in the US to registered developers.

Yeah the site still says: “The Nexus One is carrier independent, and available for purchase in the approved markets (Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States) by any developer registered with Android Market™.”

Finally! It took way to long to happen, but I’m glad none the less. This will see a lot more Aussie oriented apps in the market. Aussie developers can now actually take Android seriously as a development platform. It will also inspire continued improvement of existing Aussie apps. Good for consumers, good for Android!
