Google has decided to take a plunge into the e-books market and have released Google eBooks. Formerly known as Google Editions, Google have done quite some work combining the good parts from its competitors’ offerings, while keeping the UI clean. With Google eBookstore, books will be stored in the cloud, with your progress synced across devices. Reading can be done on Android, iPhone, or iPad as well as directly from your browser, or on any device that supports Adobe’s Digital Editions DRM for PDF and ePub files, which quite a few e-readers actually do. Apart from commercial titles, there will also be public domain books offered for free. Unfortunately, like almost all things good, this isn’t available in Europe yet.
