Payment options for Android Market

Not long ago, I read a post at 
about coming updates to the Android Market. These updates had to do
with expanded options for billing beyond the current ones (free vs.
paid). I was wondering if anyone had any idea when these additional
options will be available. Google Checkout has a new capability for
monthly subscriptions, which is in beta. I assume the updates to
Android Market will take place once the new Google Checkout feature is
out of beta. I also assume the time table for this particular feature
coming out of beta will be shorter than the beta period for, say,
Gmail. Any insights are appreciated.

2. Problems with Google Map View tutorial


The tutorials are very helpful at:

I am having an issue with the "Hello Views -> Google Map View" that I
cannot seem to resolve.  When I run the project, it seems to install
on the AVD but it doesn't actually start the Activity on the device.
It just installs and says "Done!"  I am using Eclipse with the plugin
and the Google AVD.

[2010-05-13 13:44:01 - HelloGoogleMaps] Device API version is 7
(Android 2.1)
[2010-05-13 13:44:01 - HelloGoogleMaps] Uploading HelloGoogleMaps.apk
onto device 'emulator-5554'
[2010-05-13 13:44:01 - HelloGoogleMaps] Installing
[2010-05-13 13:44:05 - HelloGoogleMaps] Success!
[2010-05-13 13:44:05 - HelloGoogleMaps] \HelloGoogleMaps\bin
\HelloGoogleMaps.apk installed on device
[2010-05-13 13:44:05 - HelloGoogleMaps] Done!

Since I could not resolve this, I created a new project and followed a
different tutorial on the same subject and got it working, so I know
I'm using the correct google maps api key.  I could just move forward
with what I have that's working, but the engineer in me can't stand
that I don't know why my first attempt did not work.

I have looked through the manifest, the layout, and the java source
code and I can't figure it out.  The AVD says that the app is
installed on the phone, when I go to manage the Applications in
"Settings", however it doesn't show up on the home screen with all the
other installed apps.

Can anyone offer suggestions?

Thank you!
