Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Launching Android Business App Market?

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

There's been a lot of buzz this past week on whether or not Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is going to be launching a business market for Android.

When pressed about it spokesmen from Google have been somewhat coy and haven't confirmed or denied it, but have rather simply said they have nothing to talk in reference to the possibility at this time; which of course says absolutely nothing one way or the other.

A business market for Android could greatly enhance its reputation, and also provide developers with a potential and legitimate source of income if they provide some quality stuff, which business owners are always looking for.

Unnamed sources evidently communicated to Mashable that the focus of the new business App store will be on developing software for customers using the Google Apps.

Some of those mentioned are word processing, information porting/syncing and better security.

Most think this is a good idea, and if adding some type of review proces before allowing the apps in the store could be a good way to start the initiative, giving users more confidence in the products offered.

There does seem to be some confusion out there whether this is out there in the cloud or Android marketplace, or possibly both. We should find out sometime in the next week more clearly what the Google App store changes are talking specifically about.

The consumer market for apps is certainly bigger than the business market, and I think the jury is still out on who wins. That said, businesses have been pretty well over-looked in this discussion so far. Who do you think will win the war for the biggest and best business app store? We're making a run for it at Canvas, and we just released our portfolio in Android Market. I'd be curious to get your thoughts on how we should market our business apps through iTunes, Android Market, Windows Marketplace and other app stores.
