Google’s Android announced that it will soon introduce new features in Android Market for Android 1.6, which will improve user experience. For one, developers will be able to post screenshots and descriptions (as well as icons), to showcase their apps.

Google has also provided the following video (the first one) showing the new Android Market:

The new Android Market comes with four new sub-categories for apps:

– Sports
– Health
– Themes
– Comics

"Developers can now choose these sub-categories for both new and existing applications via the publisher website," explains Android’s Eric Chu.

Android has also added seller support for developers in Italy, which means Italian developers can just go to the publisher website to upload apps, and target any countries where paid apps are available to users.
