Google overhauling the Android Market UI again
posted by Michael H. / Jul 12, 2011, 3:43 PM
The new UI also highlights Google's video and books stores, so you can rent video or buy books much easier. Google has also said that they have completely rebuilt the Market app, so the entire experience should be faster and more intuitive than before.
An interesting note that Google casually tossed into the preview video for the new Market is that Google is claiming their bookstore has the "largest collection of digital books" on your phone. Google is still claiming over 3 million books in their store, compared to just under 1 million in the Kindle store.
The Android Market update should automatically be pushed to your device (assuming you're running Android 2.2+) over the next couple weeks.

I get the feeling we're gonna see a lot of unofficial sharing of ideas (some may call it copying) between Android, iOS, and WP7 from here on out.

@Coolaaron88 There's always going to be a need for a cut-off point. Companies can't be expected to support legacy devices forever. Are you crying over your Windows 95 Pentium desktop not being able to run Windows 7 too? Or the recent termination of Xbox Live access for the original Xbox? The biggest difference here is that the software is left open for people who want to push their devices to the limit (http://theunlockr.com/downloads/android-downloads/android-roms/).

I like this, but what I wish they would also consider adding is a short 10-20 second clip for games so you could really see it in action.

I don't think we'll see Taco or Gemini or the-one-with-the-naked-guy-picture blind faces on this post, since their minds will probably be blown by something completely unknown and unfathomable to them: innovation and improvement of an existing concept
