Google has announced the addition of new paid Android apps on its Android Market Store. The Android market is similar to the iTunes App store but has far less offerings at only 800 applications compared to the 15,000 on iTunes.

Google says that it is looking forward to launching apps that will allow Android phone users to perform tasks that are currently performed on PCs. An example is voice-activated search, which is available from Google now.

Google has announced that it will now allow developers to charge for the apps sold on the Android market and has begun accepting applications for developers in both the US and the UK. The applications available for purchase will be available by the middle of this week in the US and later in the UK.
