Rumor alert! I've received a tip from a very trustworthy source that Google will announce support for PayPal payments in the Android Market on Nov. 2. It's no secret that PayPal and Google have been working on making it happen, and we honestly expected an announcement last week during PayPal's developer's forum, but it didn't materialize.
We take all rumors with a grain of salt (and you should, too!), but the details surrounding this one sure sound right, and I'm going with it. There's not much more I can say, but be on the lookout for this news as well as some other announcements from developers and publishers on Nov. 2. Thanks to our anonymous friend!
