It seems that the Google Android OS, the platform touted as being open for all, is a little less open for some than others. If you own an unlocked developer G1 Android phone, even those received by Google employees, you may be missing out on some paid apps in the Android Market.
So far, apps like Shazam and Calorie Counter only appear as free apps - at least they do on my unlocked G1. According to Google's Android Market help site, "copy-protected applications, including Shazam and Calorie Counter" are invisible to unlocked developer phones. I guess the developer phones make it easier to commit pirating mayhem. Hopefully this issue will be remedied quickly because those with developer and unlocked phones should find this untenable. If you have an unlocked or developer G1, are you missing anything?
