According to Google, the new Google eBooks “is all about choice” in recognition that while there are many solid digital reading solutions today (Kindle, Nook, Sony, Kobo), they all exist in their own incompatible ecosystems. For example, you can’t read your Kindle books on the Nook, and so on. Google eBooks aims to change that by making three million titles available on a multitude of devices, including your smarpthone (with a just-released version of Google Books for Android and soon iOS…check it out!). The idea here is that you start a book on your smartphone, continue on your tablet, read a few more pages through your web browser, and finally, snuggle with your eReader (as long as it supports Adobe’s eBook platform…sorry Kindle users). The idea isn’t dissimilar to the Kindle ecosystem which allows you to read Kindle books on a multitude of devices, but Google’s system claims to be more open since it’s not using a proprietary format to deliver books, plus it has more titles available. We’ll have more coverage of the Android and iPhone versions of Google Books soon.
