A New Market Is On The Horizon

Android, Mobile Phone, Technology

 

 

Just when you thought Google’s plate was too full (with Gingerbread/Honeycomb, Google Music and Google+), it looks like the Android team is sprucing up the Market a bit.

The snapshots above were taken from my phone on the new Market.  The functionality is almost the same as it was before.  But the look and feel seems vastly improved.  More importantly, there are hints about new things on the horizon.  In particular, there appears to be a movie rental option that may soon arrive in the Market.

But from my vantage point, I’m just satisfied with a Market that works when I need it.  In the past, I’ve relied upon the Market to rebuild my system whenever I’ve had to do a clean install of Android.  In fact, I just have to point a newly pressed image at the Market and let my phone build from there.  It is seamless and nearly faultless.  Sure it takes some time to rebuild.  But  the feature is well worth the wait.

Now, the Market also looks great as well.  My only concern is that the newer images will require a great deal more downloading and file transfers.  I sure hope that you aren’t paying for all the new graphics that Google is now pushing at you.
