Canadian Android smartphone users have had a long wait to get access to the paid app section on the Android marketplace; nine months to be precise. Now there are indications that the standoff could soon come to an end.
The Montreal Gazette writes that an announcement regarding this shall probably be made next week. The publication quotes a Google Canada spokesperson as saying
“There are many factors that come into play to make sure the selling and purchasing processes run smoothly. It takes time to bring support to more countries, which is something we are working hard to do.”
While it is possible that the announcement is simply to elaborate on the reasons behind the inordinate delay, we hope it is going to be much more positive than that.[via Montreal Gazette]
