Google is moving fast with this; Google Books and Android Market both updated themselves to Google Play on my smartphone this morning
Google is trying to establish a one-stop shop that can satisfy everyone’s digital desires, whether they are on a mobile device or a desktop computer’s Web browser. The effort is part of the Internet search leader’s broader ambition to diversify beyond online advertising, which accounts for 96 percent of its revenue.
With Google Play, the company hopes more people will start noticing other types of content and consider buying an electronic book or album, too. If that happens, Google Inc. believes more digital content providers will want to peddle their wares in its store.
