Google eBookstore Launched
angrytuna writes “The New York Times is running an article this morning about the launch of the Google ebook store. Independent bookstores such as Powell’s, based in Portland, OR, have partnered with Google in this, selling the format directly in addition to their other ebook offerings. The ebooks appear to rely on Adobe Digital Editions for DRM; instructions are provided to transfer from the ‘cloud’ to a handheld device. iOS and Android have a dedicated app for accessing the store, and will download for offline immediately; other clients like the Nook and Sony eReader seem to be relying on the ADE platform to manage the transfer for offline reading.” NPR tried it out on a few different devices and posted their experience.
