We shall explain and handle case by case our potential users's concerns and educated them about our application. Like previously said, state into the app description the reason why the permission is needed is a good start :)
If you don't have room in the app description, put it on the website that your Market listing links to. That's what I do - list the app's permissions, and why each is needed, in an FAQ on my linked site. And I've yet to receive a single e-mail from a prospective user asking why the permissions are needed.
For the record, I've done exactly this on one of my apps, PLUS a big button on the main screen that links to the very same FAQ, and I still get a fair amount of users who fail to read it... 8-/ I guess this is a sign of hitting the mass market as opposed to hi-tech geeks, so it's not all bad. (In my case, the application is very much Sweden specific, so everything is in Swedish except, obviously, the Market as that is still not an option.) Best / Jonas --
