Google reveals a new update for the Android Market in the United States, which gives mobile users a new GUI and other awesome goodies for their Android-powered smartphones and tablets. The update leaked a couple weeks ago, upgrading the old Android Market to version 3.0.27 , keep in mind the devices must be running Android 2.2 or higher.
If you ask me , the new Android Market has a Honeycomb feel to it with a more updated and organized theme pleasing layout as well as plenty new features. The best new features? The ability to purchase and view eBooks via Google Books and rent and watch movies via WIFI or Data Connection. There are thousands of movie rentals available within the Videos app, starting at $1.99, which you can stream instantly to any of your devices—computers, smartphones and tablets—or download directly to your device for future viewing. You will be please to see some of the same movie releases in your local walmart or redbox, Unfortunately Netflix cannot compete with the New Releases compare to the Android Market.
Also, you may have an easier time discovering great new apps with the enhanced Top Charts and Related Apps, as well as a few of Google’s new lists, including Editors’ Choice, Top Developers and Trending Apps. These lists can all be found in the Apps and Games homepages by swiping left or right, and they’re country specific now to provide more relevant results.
