Maybe they’ll think through the requirements (e.g., customer support) for this store first, unlike the Google phone store.
Google Inc. is preparing to launch a store selling online business software that integrates with its Web services, according to people briefed by the company, enlisting software developers in its battle against Microsoft Corp.
These people said the store will sell business software designed by outside developers to integrate and add capabilities to Google Apps, such as enhanced security features or the ability to import contacts. Google Apps provides Web-based email, word-processing and spreadsheet functions. Google could announce the new store—a revamped version of its Solutions Marketplace site that features third-party programs—as soon as March, they said.
