T-Mobile Gets a "Top Picks" Section in the Android Market.

T-Mo Picks 02What once as an application created for the MyTouch 3G launch has turned into a dedicated area within the Android Market. The “Downloads” link from the main landing page of the market has been replaced with a “T-Mobile” label.  This entirely new section showcases applications, both paid and free, which they consider to be “Top Picks.”

The link to the “My Downloads” area is now found by hitting the Menu button.

News of this new section does introduce some questions, including:

  • What does this look like for non-T-Mobile customers?
  • Will there be similar sections created for other carriers?
  • Does this hint at revenue-sharing deals with carriers?
