Google’s joining the E-book store battle with Amazon and Apple by opening their own online store. Check out what paid content had to say about the announcement.

Google to Join Amazon & Apple In E-book Battle…

Google’s forthcoming e-books store now has an official launch date: The end of the year…

…Executives now tell the WSJ that the store, which is being called Google Editions, will launch in the U.S. by the end of December and will debut abroad during the first three months of 2011. They say the launch was delayed because they “didn’t want to come out with something that wasn’t thorough.”

Google has outlined details of the store, including the percentage of revenue it will share with publishers…

…The store, which Google has said will feature more than 500,000 titles, will be device-agnostic, meaning that texts will be readable on any device with a browser. Consumers will be able to buy the electronic titles both on the Google Editions site, as well as on the sites of third-party retailers who are allowed to resell access.

Google seems to be actually taking their time on this venture, unlike Buzz, so maybe this will be something that requires our adoption.

The fact that the e-books can be read on any device really opens up the stage for content creators to move in and set up shop.  If this integrates easily with other Google apps, which I’m sure it will, this could be a very desirable option for those purchasing all types of e-books, especially if they get stored electronically.

Will you be adding your ebooks to this store when it opens up? Comment Below?
