Google eBooks for Android is a Nook Color, Galaxy Tab advantage.
Google has unveiled its Google eBooks store. The new Google online store currently supports almost all gadgets and platforms that has internet connection.
But surprisingly, Nook Color, the Android powered e-reader of Barnes and Noble is classified in the Adobe eBook platform category with Sony Reader in the devices page.
Nook Color, the new product version of the American bookstore, is powered by Android 2.1 (Eclair), but compared to other gadgets with the said OS, Nook Color has its very own app store, and doesn’t allow its users to get access to the Android apps marketplace.
With Google eBooks, Nook Color owners now have another store to check out, aside from the gadget’s official eBooks store called NookBooks. It’s also exciting to see that Sony Reader can also run Google eBooks app.
The Google eBooks application is available to smartphones and other gadgets running Android 2.1 (Eclair) or later. So aside from Nook Color owners, this new service from Google is also a good news to Samsung Galaxy Tab users. The Samsung Tablet has 7-inch display, perfect for reading e-books.
Aside from Nook Color and Samsung Galaxy tab, I’m expecting future Android tablets to use Google eBooks as another marketing item, to compete with Apple’s iPad that has its iBooks store (Google eBooks is also available to iPad users).
