Handango, the provider of countless games, productivity tools, entertainment software and business applications for the cell/smart phone, tablet PC and PSP markets, has made an announcement: it will be the first retailer to facilitate the distribution of developers' Android applications to end users.
Coders already have the ability to add Android programs to their Handango account, and can opt to charge a one-time purchase price; set up monthly, quarterly, or annual subscription fees; or just give their wares away!
Handango was kind enough to provide a teaser list with a sampling of software that will be Available for Android:
On top of this heaping pile of good news, Handango is sponsoring a contest that awards the creators of the best apps with $25,000 worth of marketing. It's open until November 7th, and winners will be announced on December 15th.
By the end of the year we are going to see some exciting things happening in the Android software world. Well, probably before then, but it's definitely a ramping-up of activity. I'll be back with some info on these (and other) applications as soon as I get my G1.
There ain't no party like a G1 party, cuz the G1 party don't stop!
