German G1s seeing apps in USD & GBP. Is it true?

 I'm seeing some twitter traffic saying that G1s in Germany (where the local
currency is the Euro), can see paid for apps but the prices are listed in US
Dollars and British pounds.

I've seen the term in the Google distribution agreement which says that
market may show an equivalent value in the local currency, is this going to
be turned on because this is just going to get more and more confusing for
users as more currencies are added?


P.S. for those that are interested. The end of 3.1 in says ;

"You may set the price for your Products in the currencies permitted by the
Payment Processor. The Market may display to users the price of Products in
their native currency, but it is not responsible for the accuracy of
currency rates or conversion"

Which I can see opening a can of legal worms if they show a 2.50 app as
being $3.50 and then charging the user $3.60.

1. What will the Android Dev Phone 2 be?

Will it be the HTC Hero?  The HTC Magic?  Will it support CDMA?  Will
there be an Android Dev Phone 2 at all?

I know that's a lot of questions to ask, but I would love to know if
there is going to be an Android Dev Phone 2.  I have been thinking
about trying to get an unlocked Hero through, because I hear that
Devicewire is going to sell them (I believe Brightstar Corp sold the
last versions, am I right?).  But if Google is going to endorse the
sale of a Dev Phone 2 through some site, I'd rather get that.  I'd
rather have it support CDMA though, so that my only two USA phone
carrier choices aren't AT&T and T-Mobile. ;)




2. Quick Dev Phone Question

Hey everyone,

I'm thinking about buying an Android dev phone, since I just switched
to AT&T. It looks great, but I can't afford the data plan from AT&T,
so I was wondering if there's a way for me to disable data on
cellular, but still allow it while on wifi. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
