Market price variations?
Anyone notice that the different markets have different prices?
For example, I was looking at getting "Business Calendar"
(I am kicking myself that I missed the Amazon free app offer for it)
Amazon has it for $4.99.
AppBrain is $5.51
Android Market is $5.93.
I guess like just buying apples, you gotta shop around.We'll both get 500mb free on top of 5gig signup bonus and a new Android app is out:

Amazon will raise and lower prices of their apps based on algorithms they use to increase sales/revenue for the developer. They purport to never list it higher than the lowest price the same app is sold for on any other market. Though I have never bothered to vet that claim myself.
It's odd that AppBrain showed a different price from Android Market though, as AppBrain is really nothing but a portal to the Android Market itself, and not a market in it's own right."Some see the glass as half-empty, some see the glass as half-full. I see the glass as too big."
