Google Editions eBookstore to Launch by Summer - Let the ebook wars begin


Google Editions

According to an article in today’s Wall Street Journal Google Editions—Google’s attempt to elbow its way into the ebook market—will launch sometime this summer.  When it does become available, Google Editions will launch with some 400,000 to 600,000 titles available.  When you compare this to the 330,000 titles available on Amazon.com for Kindle supporting devices, it is clear that Google means to be a major player in the ebook market right from jumpstreet.  With Google Editions, not only will people be able to buy books via multiple devices—including the —using Google’s book search service, but independent shops will also be able to sell Google Editions copies of books via their own personal websites.  With the availability of titles coming directly from their search engine, and not from a typical store-based website, Google is betting heavily on its massive web-presence to make Google Editions the standard of the ebook market. Cry ‘havoc’ and let slip the (ebook) dogs of war!
