Insyde Market – The First App Market Exclusively For Android Netbooks

insyde_marketLast week the doors officially opened up for AppsLib, the market designed for Android-based devices with larger screens.  Timed with the Archos A5 announcement, it’s the first place to check if you are looking for apps optimized for screens at 800×480 resolution.  Today sees another market opportunity for developers.

Insyde Market is sending out emails to developers letting them know their apps are being tested and readied for netbooks.  The Insyde Market team wants to help adapt your app so that it works well with netbooks.  According to their website, they will assist in getting your title readied for multi-touch, larger screens, and full-size keyboards.

The market for your Android applications is about to expand very quickly and very soon. Insyde Software, the leading mobile computer firmware provider is partnering with the world’s leading computer OEMs to bring the Google Android operating environment to the x86 netbook market.

In the coming months, we expect Acer and other netbook makers will introduce new products that leverage the open Google Android Platform. Here’s your chance to become an early access member of Insyde Market, the first Android application market exclusively for netbooks.

Congratulations! Your application, StatusToggle, has been tested by Insyde Market for netbooks. You don’t need to worry that the hardware is different from the normal Android phone. What you need to do is just register and upload your application. Here’s how you can take the first step to getting started in this ground-breaking Android application market: click on: http://developer.insydemarket.com!

No word yet on when the Insyde Market plans to open the doors, but we’re guessing it could be months.  After all, we need netbooks that handle Android first.  It will be interesting to see how things play out when Chrome starts shipping.  Will Android netbooks be a non-starter?

Thanks to Paul for the tip and good luck with your app, StatusToggle!
