Finally catching up with the rest of the Android world, Google has released 1.1 firmware for the Android Developer’s Phone. As well as bug fixes for alarm clock, device sleep, POP3 email, and email notification, there is also now support for some paid applications.
From the Android Developer’s Blog:
Some developers have asked about the support for copy-protected apps on developer devices, and indeed there is a limitation you should be aware of. Many developers are concerned about the unauthorized redistribution of their applications, so they make use of the copy-protection feature (known as “forward locking”) which prevents applications from being copied off devices. However, developer phones like the ADP1 allow for unrestricted access to the device’s contents, making it impossible to enforce copy protection. As a result, the Market application on such devices is not able to access copy protected apps, whether they are free or paid.
