Chrome Web Store coming in October?

Google logoGoogle's Chrome Web Store could be ready to launch by October of this year, suggesting that Chrome OS devices are likely on a similar schedule.

Google appears to be getting ready to let Web application developers start playing around with its Chrome Web Store, if a recent presentation at the Game Developer Conference in Europe is any indication. has a report out with pictures and video of Google's Mark DeLoura and Michael Mahemoff explaining how developers will be able to submit apps to the store, which was announced in May at Google I/O.

Most of the presentation was discussed during Google I/O, but a few interesting tidbits have emerged. Most importantly, it suggests that the Chrome Web Store will be ready to go in October of this year, implying that Chrome OS-based devices could be ready to go the same month. The only timing Google has provided to date about the launch plans for Chrome OS Netbooks has been "late fall."

Google also plans to only charge developers a 5 percent "processing fee," according to the report, deviating from the usual application store practices where the store operator gets a 30 percent cut of the revenue from application sales. Support for multiple currencies and in-game transactions won't arrive until next year.

A Google representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the report.
