Le roi est mort, vive le roi!

The Android Market just closed the doors and it seems Google goes on to consolidate his services. Google Play has now officially replaced the Android Market on my Motorola Defy+ and delivers a lot more than just apps. You’re now also able to obtain music and eBooks through this online store. Beneath you’re also able to rent videos on this online store.

Google Play also offers some online space to store around 20.000 songs. This helps when the music collection has to be transferred from one phone to another. Basically this means your music collection bought over at Google Play is available on every Android device you own. Just log in to your Google account and you’re ready to go.

Google now automatically updates the store application on your phone within the next days. Installed apps and purchased music can be used as usual. To kick off the new shopping platform, there are special offers for 49 Cent available for a short period.
