New Android Market Makes Its Way To The UK

Looks like our friends overseas, the Great Brits, will be seeing some new Android Market love before December’s end as well. We’ve been seeing the new Market roll out here in the US on several devices already, such as the Nexus One and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Google seems to be wasting no time at all pushing the update out to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, UK residents will also have to endure the brutal decrease in the amount of time one can refund an application. Like us, they too will have 15 min to return an application instead of the previous 24 hrs.

From the Android Developers Website:

With a focus on improving discoverability and merchandising, we’ve introduced a new carousel on the home and category screens. Users can quickly flip through the carousel to view promoted applications and immediately go to the download page for the application they want. Developers have been very active in creating great Widgets and Live Wallpapers. To make it easier for users to find their favorites, we’re introducing two new categories for Widgets and Live Wallpapers. Applications that include Widgets and Wallpapers will be automatically added to those new categories. We’ll also be adding more categories for popular applications and games in the weeks ahead. In addition, the app details page now includes Related content, which makes it easier for users to quickly find apps of similar interest.

Have you received the update yet? Don’t forget to let us know what device you’re using in the comments!
