Google Adds Movie Rentals to New Android Market
Google today announced a new version of the Android Market that introduces a number of new features. The first new feature is the ability to rent movies from either the Market app or the (new) Android Video application for $1.99. Android device users can also purchase books directly from their handsets. These rentals and purchases are tied to a user's Google account, which manages the billing. Google has refreshed the design of the Market, making it easier to search for and find information about applications. The new market will roll out to users over the course of the next few weeks and requires Android 2.2 and up.
