Android tablets to become bog friendly

Google Reader might be about to die a slow death, but avid readers locked into Google’s Android OS might have something to look forward to after all.


Android Police has dug up references to a new news service in Google’s Play Store. Dubbed Google Play News, the service aims to take on Apple’s Newsstand, but details are sketchy. It should be possible to buy single magazines or subscriptions, but free news content is also on board.

Other than that, and Google’s choice of colours for the news section, we still don’t know much. Play News might show up in upcoming Android updates and we might get to see it at Google I/O in a couple of months’ time.
