Google eBookstore official

iOS and Android apps outed for cloud-based book store

Buy books, stash them online and read on any device.

Google has come over all official with its new eBookstore, which lets bookworms nab millions of titles and store them in the cloud, making them available to read on, “pretty much any device with an internet connection”.

Once you’ve bought a book, it’ll be stored online in the same way your emails are stashed on Gmail or pics kept on Picasa. You can then read it on your PC, tablet or phone, depending on what takes your fancy.

For now, the Google eBookstore is a US only affair, but last week a Google exec suggested a worldwide launch would be on its way in the first quarter of 2011. Have a gander at it in action in the clip below now and let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
