Users around the world have been begging for it, and Google is finally responding with the addition of 20 new countries to the list of those that can purchase paid apps in the Android Market. We first caught wind that more countries were being cycled in last week but today makes the announcement official. In addition to the 20 countries just added, over the next two weeks there are plans to add paid apps in the Android Market for an additional 18 countries.
Countries added to the list include Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan. Total paid app support now site at 32 countries world-wide.
A happy day for both Android users and developers who will get to reap the benefits of a much larger audience who can purchase their apps. Rejoice in the comments below.
