In the wake of recent announcements regarding upcoming mobile application stores on platforms other than the iPhone, additional details about these new stores are beginning to come to light.

Notably, Androinica reports that Google's Android Market is offering a 24-hour return policy on application purchases.

App browsing is a breeze when all of the products are free to try, so how will that change now that some apps cost money? Well, it basically won't. Any app purchased from the Android Market can be returned within 24 hours from the time of purchase. That means from the moment you buy that app, not install it, so be sure to install right after purchasing and make a decision on whether or not paid apps are worth keeping.

Androinica also points out several other items of interest in the Android Market Business and Program Policies document, including the lack of application upgrades within the market, meaning that users will have to obtain upgrades directly from developers. Google also reveals that all billing disputes related to app purchases must be directed to the developers or payment providers, not Google.
