The Orange Android Market has just been opened up to developers to post up apps free and paid.
I would warn anyone though, if you wish to put paid app's on the Orange Market, there is NO app protection, the Android Market protection will not help. Therefore someone with a rooted phone can get all apk's from the orange market and post them for free.
So if your a free app go for it, but just a warning if you want people to pay for your app watch out!
Official Response from orange:
Thanks for the question. DRM protection for Android apps is something we are looking at. We are investigating Android's licensing solution using the LVL and seeing if we can replicate it or enhance it. One possible solution would be to provide an Orange equivalent that worked both on Orange and on Android market. If this was possible would it be something you would use?
Any solution we develop is in the future and you are right that we don't not have that protection at present but it is something we are conscious of and are working to implement.
