Google's Eric Chu has contacted Android Developers that new countries can now be targeted in Android Market. Though not all of these countries actually have Android-capable phones quite yet, when they finally do, they'll have a slew of apps to choose from.

What's currently unclear is what their exact plans for releasing Android in those markets are. We'll be on the lookout for more news on the European Front as it comes by.

Here's the full E-Mail, as delivered:

Hello, I'm writing to let you know that Android Market will become available to users in Germany, Austria, Czech RepublicNetherlands, and Poland in the coming weeks. You can now target these countries for your application(s) via the publisher website at As we add support for additional countries, we will send out subsequent notifications to you.  Note that your apps will not become available in these new countries unless you specifically select them in the publisher website. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to continue working with you on Android Market. Eric Chu, Android Market
