eReading from Google

It's not the technology.

That's what my wife told me when I said one of the problems I have with Android is the lack of a bookstore app from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. She says it's some business deal that Apple/RIM have with the bookstores that prevents them from working with Google.

Apparently Google has another solution, with an article about Google Editions. They are looking to build a storefront and let publishers set the prices. I think that makes sense, and it makes me more interested in an Android device.

They still need a way to manage music better, but this is a good step. For now, however, I'll stick with my iPhone, which works well for me for music, books, and phone functions.
