Android: No Porn

I tittered at this comic last month, where the Android phone defeated the iPhone in a brag-off by claiming “we’ll have porn apps.” It is all about the open platform, right?

According to phandroid.com, porn is excluded from the Android Market Terms of Service:

Unacceptable Content. Google has listed practices that are unacceptable, prohibited and will result in having your account banned. They are: Nudity & Sexually Explicit Material, Violence/Bullying/Threats, Hate Speech, Age (must be 13+), Impersonation, Private Info, Copyright Infringement, Illegal Activities, Malicious Products, Prohibited Products.

Way to go, Google! Of course, I think you’ll be able to install applications from outside of the marketplace, and besides I hear that social networking is now more popular than pornography.
