New Android Market Hits The Streets

It just came to our attention that Google had been thinking about showering us with gifts in July. First, we see the arrival of Google +. Now, we can see that today is the day when the new version of the Android market has made its appearance. If you followed at least a little bit of Google IO, you may remember that this new market is supposed to be loaded with more goodies than just apps. The new market gives you the option to browse and purchase movies and books straight from the market in the same way that you buy apps. The apks have been spotted and made available throughout the internet, and of course, our forums. The installation package can be found in several threads across the site, one such thread was started yesterday by XDA member Kevin001111. However, there are dozens of threads about it. Some chefs have even started including it in their roms. The best part is that it doesn’t seem to be device specific, but it does not seem to be optimized for tablets just yet.

Please give it a shot and leave some feedback and your thoughts about it.

You can find more information in the application thread.
