Google Launches Long-Awaited E-Bookstore - 1 views

  • Google has launched its long-awaited e-bookstore, Google E-books, bringing more than 3 million books — many of them free — to any device with a web browser.
  • The initiative, previously known as Google Editions, offers an alternative sales model from the dominant players in the space, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple.
  • This allows independent booksellers with loyal customer bases to advertise and sell Google e-books via their own venues and take an (as of yet undisclosed) cut of the revenue, an opportunity previously denied to them.

  • In addition to a Google Web Reader application, users will be able to read Google e-books on apps for Android (), iPhone and iPad devices. Reading content will automatically sync across devices, so if you begin reading in the morning in the iPad, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off on your iPhone or Android device on the subway, and again on your office computer during your lunch break.

    With that in mind, we'd like to help TechRepublic readers in selecting an e-reader, since many of you are using them not just for reading books but business documents as well. Take a look at our photo gallery of the top 10 e-readers. You can also read the list in text format below."
