New Android Market now rolling out to phones, brings the ability to buy books and rent moviesAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Good news, Android fans! Google just announced that a new version of the Android Market is now rolling out to phones in the wild. The refreshed Market features a fancy new design that we originally saw back in May, the ability to purchase books and rent movies, and a streamlined look and feel to make finding and buying apps quicker and easier. The new Market is available to handsets running Android 2.2 or higher and is now in a "phased roll-out." Google says that everyone should have the new Android Market in the coming weeks. If you're not one of the lucky folks that already have access to the new Market, you can peep a video of it in action below.
As I said before when we first got a peek at this redesigned version of the Android Market, I think Google's done a great job of with its revamp. The new UI looks clean and it meshes well with Android 2.3 and the whole Gingerbread look and feel. It's kind of a bummer that not everyone will get access to the new Market right away, but I'm sure the Android community will figure out a way around that. What do you all make of the latest version of the Android Market?
