Don't call it Google Editions

| Software News | Posted: Dec 7, 2010 4:52 am

Google's long awaited e-bookstore has finally gone live. Google E-books will be bringing over three million titles to any web-browsing capable device in the U.S. with a large selection of free titles.

Foregoing the previous name of Google Editions, Google E-books allows customers to purchase titles from either their store or independent sellers that wish to advertise with Google. Apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad to read Google e-books are available as well and content will sync across any device you own; even allowing you to put down a book on one device and pick up at the same page on another device.

 

Nearly 4,00 publishers, including well known industry leaders like Random House, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette, are on board with Google E-books for their launch. No word on the share Google gets from books sold from independent retailers that use Google E-books.
