    Google just dropped an exciting bomb on the entire Android community. They released their new browser-based 'Android Market' for the Web. They coincided the website launch with their announcement during their Google event, then posted an enticing introduction on their blog. Here's a quote,
    Awesome news! I can see a ton of ways that this will be useful and it's strange that they never did this sooner. What do you guys think of this? Hit the links below to see the website and the blog.

    LOL calling the mkt a "fail" an hour after launch is a little premature. i would imagine it's going to take a little bit to accomodate millions of Andy users... ;)

    I am assuming from the nature of the web site that support for browsing from an android device isn't very practical in the first place.

    Its an e-commerce site - yet I cannot buy anything. That's a fail by any definition. LOL!

    Lets chalk this website up to "beta release" and wait for the full implementation before calling it a failure for missing some key features.
