Google Editions Ready To Launch Soon

Google Editions

Google Inc. is ready to launch a new e-book venture by the end of the year in the U.S. according to sources within the company. The move from Google has been delayed several times and was suppose to launch earlier this summer.

The venture from Google Inc. will consist of an e-book retailer known as Google Edition. Unlike current e-book retailers, Google Edition will allow customers to purchase e-books and read them anywhere, anytime. The books can be purchased directly from Google Edition, or other authorized independent booksellers, and then become tied to a Google account.

Google hopes to have the retailer up and running in the U.S. by the end of the year, with the venture going international in the first quarter of 2011. Google Edition e-books will be accessible by customers via their personal computers, tablets, and smartphones.
