    The vendor Motorola is planning on a own "Market" app to
    provide free and payed Apps to their OWN SMARTPHONES,
    meaning for DROID's and so on. The APK File was online for one
    day and has been tested by several users, providing the screenshots for it.

    But just have a look:

    Right now the APK is offline again, but Motorola confirmed that they have something cooking in the kitchen called "SHOPP4APPS"

    This is pretty cool though. Actually it's pretty awesome : )

    The ability to purchase apps from the desktop site, place them in your MyLocker, and then download it using your handset.

    Sounds great to me as long as we get to keep the Android market too.

    You will, Motorola is just willing to add a little "extra" to their phones only to force sales!
    Good for us.

    it would be cool if there was a feature like how they do it with Xbox Live.
    for those unfamiliar, you can go to xbox's site and search for downloadable content, check what you want to download, then the next time you turn your xbox on it will automatically download what you wanted.

    this took them a few years to get up and running but hopefully motorola will be able to do it faster lol

    edit: nvm just read the entire article. i guess they are bringing something similar to it
