New Android Market Coming Soon

Android-powered devices will soon see a revamped Android Market that delivers a more slick and sophisticated way to discover and purchase apps.

The rollout will happen over the next two weeks and will work for devices running Android 1.6 and higher.

THe first thing you’re probably notice is the carousel interface on the home screen and category screens. Here, you’ll see featured apps you can quickly flip through and download. Another cool — and long overdue — discovery feature will be a listing of related apps for each application’s details page.

The Market is also getting two new categories, Widgets and Live Wallpapers, with more categories coming for popular apps and games coming soon.

Another significant change is the return-for-refund window for apps. Currently, users have 24 hours from the time they purchase an app to return it for a full and unconditional refund. With the Market update, that window will be decreased to 15 minutes
