Android Market to Add Music, Movies, and Books

Anyone with their eyeballs on the mobile market as a whole wont be too surprised at the tip we’ve just received on a few URLs hidden in the framework of the web-based Android Marketplace. As you may already know, you can now access the Android Market by heading over to http://market.android.com/ – this version of the market allowing you to download apps directly to any number of devices you choose, all of this over the air. What you might NOT know is that there are several URLs currently functioning that point toward a potentially gigantic growth potential in the market in several new forms of media for Google.

 

You may have seen this coming if you’ve considered such situations as Google releasing their very owneBooks for Android app, or the Samsung Galaxy S 4G coming stocked with the movie Inception. Seen what coming, you ask? Why, sections in the Android Market addresses pointing to music, movies, and books!

Take a peek at any of the following:
http://market.android.com/music/
http://market.android.com/movies/
http://market.android.com/books/

Each of these addresses of course still points toward the main frontpage of the Android Marketplace, but when you type any other word inside that last set of slashes, you get a 404. What does it all mean? War! — thanks to our pal Fragger for the tip on the addresses.

UPDATE: we’ve just received word from our brand new best buddy g123k who was apparently standing right next to us at this years Mobile World Congress where he was adventurous enough to click around in Honeycomb down to the Android Marketplace where he noticed no less than a brand new “Books” tab. Fancy that!

  1. Stiu ca nu toti putem sa fim cu ochii pe Pro TV vineri seara pentru a urmari show-ul Romanii au talent, si tocmai de aceea va anunt ca aici pe site puteti revedea video cu cei care s-au prezentat pe scena, poze, interviuri, dar si emisiunile inregistrate, fiecare editie in parte!

  2. I’d come to allow with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
