If some new tweaks to the Android Steam Mobile app are any indication, Valve may be headed towards selling non-gaming apps via Android. That's speculation at the moment, as Valve hasn't provided any details that might explain why categories such as Accounting and Audio Production recently popped up. Given that the categories aren't appearing in Steam for the PC and iPhone, it's safe to guess that we might be seeing an app store that could contend with the likes of Google Play and Amazon's Appstore For Android.
These categories in the Android Steam Mobile app are new. They're also empty, for now.
It would be funny if this was all in preparation for steams rumored "console" which turned out to be based on Android OS and games and watch as the hype dies from the recent kickstarter console thats been making the news. I dont think they would do this till there was enough power for the source engine though, but its something to think about. (and rally other non direct x devs)
