App sales to start in Palm App store
by David Stellmack on25 March 2010
Should arrive next week say sources
Palm will finally be adding pay applications to their App Catalog. Our sources tell us that Palm is letting developers know that they will be able to start selling Apps beginning March 31st. Applications will be able to be purchased worldwide once the applications go on sale.
International application sales is one area where Palm is looking to have an advantage over other application stores because of the easy approval process for international sales. Tell Palm that you want the app to be available for sale internationally and then resubmit it, and it will in turn be rushed though the approval process. As far as International sales go, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany, Mexico, and Spin will be the first to get International app sales.
The news is good for Palm, who can use the income generated from the app sales; in addition, it addresses the perception that the WebOS platform does not have any applications. Our sources tell us that Palm has a stockpile of apps that are ready to go for sale as soon as the switch is thrown. If this is true, it could be a very big day for Palm and could help get the company back on the right track once again.
