    Oh thank god..I was not aware of these things and was searching for the paid apps in the market!! Even when i search for a paid app market it didn’t show anything. I am using Motorola Milestone XT720 and if anyone with this handset identifies this feature in the market please share here:-)) Thanks.

    Are you sure you are not running a custom rom or market enabler? Pretty excited by this news but so far haven’t heard from anyone else about this.

    Did “Arnab Datta” use Google Checkout in the past? (was wondering whether that might be the reason for getting the option to buy apps from Android Market)
