Google intros eBook service

Written by Fudzilla staff


Takes on Amazon and Apple
Google has launched its eBook service on Monday in a clear challenge to market leaders Amazon and Apple.

Google claims it already has about 3 million titles available in its online bookstore and that the new format will be available on tablets, smartphones, e-readers and, obviously, regular PCs.

The company has already introduced free apps for Android and Apple devices that allow readers to choose fonts, text size, spacing and adjust illumination according to lighting conditions. Google has digitized more than 15 million books so far, but not all of them have been made available yet.

You can check it out here.

poor amazon :( Google will not be fun for them to compete with. Hopefully it will not be too much of a blow to them and they can just continue being an awesome online store

Google (being the spine of the internet) will always have the upper hand on anything digital, they've already got mass server computers with extreme amounts of internet bandwidth, all they need is publishers permission and they could stream stuff such as ebooks, music, films, games etc, I wish there was one single distributor for all kinds of digital media, rather than there being iTunes for music, netflix for films, Amazon for ebooks and steam for games, all the software and crap just piles up on my computer. Google should make a start on providing all of these and become the first universal media streaming provider, it would make life easier for the majority.
