Google Updates Android Market For Phones
With this new market, users have new ways to find apps/games, purchase books and rent movies. That's right; the Movies addition is now available on Android phones with v2.2 or higher .In the U.S., you’ll be able to rent thousands of movies, starting at $1.99, right from Android Market on your phone. With the Videos app, available in Android Market, there’s no more waiting for downloads, syncing, or worrying about storage space. Simply sign into Android Market with your Google account, and you can rent movies from anywhere – the web, or your Android phone or tablet – and start watching instantly. You can also download movies to your device so they’re available for viewing when you don’t have an internet connection.
In the U.S., you can also buy books right from the Market, and since they're linked to your Google account, they're available from basically anywhere. The Market is also seeing a speed boost, but it might not hit your phone right away. It'll be rolling out in the "coming weeks," with supported phones to see it automatically. Patience is key!
