[Update: In-app billing now live on the Android Market! Android Developers Blog]

Over on the Android Developers blog, it was announced that in-app billing would be coming some time this week.

In-app billing will enable developers to do micro-transactions, subscriptions or app upgrades right through their app. In an example given on the Android Developers blog, you can see several virtual items for a “dungeon” game that the player can purchase to use in game. The possibilities are virtually endless and allow app developers numerous ways to increase their revenue stream beyond the initial app purchase.
