 Google claims it does not keep any revenue share save for a 30% carrier 
fee, however, with new Google Checkout fees 
( http://checkout.google.com/seller/fees.html ) the gross payback to 
developer becomes very different, in particular for lowest-priced apps.

For 0.99 apps

0.99 price to customer
0.30 carrier fee
0.29 flat Checkout fee
0.02 2% variable Checkout fee
0.61 total fees
0.38 developer's revenue
39% payback ratio

For 1.99 apps

1.99 price to customer
0.60 carrier fee
0.29 flat Checkout fee
0.04 2% variable Checkout fee
0.93 total fees
1.06 developer's revenue
53% payback ratio

How does this compare to Apple AppStore and third party Android apps? 
Are we in market or well below the market?

PS. Third party store owners interested in joint promo opps feel free to 
contact me directly.

 Do you really have to pay the Checkout fees?

 There is nothing on Checkout that suggests you do not have to.

 Yep,

For Android apps/games/etc, you pay 30% of your set price as a fee.
That's it.
