据pocketgamer报道，谷歌高管Eric Chu在日前旧金山的Inside Social Apps大会上表示，他对Android Market的应用销量并不满意，并称谷歌将于2011年第一季度推出该应用商店的应用内置计费解决方案，支持Android开发商通过虚拟商品和货币创造营收。
据游戏邦了解，Android Market在应用计费服务上已经有所行动，于去年12月引进了AT&T提供的计费系统，但仍然无法满足开发商和用户的服务需求。Eric Chu当时表示谷歌在未来数月将与更多运营商合作，绑定多种计费服务系统。
除此之外，Eric Chu还提到Android Market的应用搜索问题也是谷歌关注的重点，他们在今年将对该应用商店的排名算法进行调整。（本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译，转载请注明来源：游戏邦）
Google to roll out in-app payment system on Android Market in Q1 2011
Developers have repeatedly spoke of the problems the pre-eminence free apps have on Android Market is having on studios attempting to sell their wares on the marketplace.
Now it appears Google is concerned, too.
The argument is, the abundance of free releases creates a culture of consumers expecting almost all apps on the platform to be free – at least at the point of download.
In-app purchases, of course, offer a way around this, so it’s no surprise to hear platform manager Eric Chu table the roll out of a first party in-app payment solution in Q1 2011.
As detailed by Forbes, Chu told those at the Inside Social Apps conference in San Francisco that he’s disappointed in the number of apps currently being purchases on Android Market. As a result, an in-app payment system will launch imminently, enabling developers on the platform to foster revenue from virtual goods and currency.
Google has already experimented with payment systems on the marketplace of late. In December, carrier billing for AT&T customers was added to Android Market’s roster, with Chu claiming support for customers on further operators will also be added in the coming months.
Chu also stated that app discovery is a key issue on Android at the moment, claiming Google will continue to tune the Market ranking algorithm in 2011.（source:pocketgamer）
