    What's in a name...
    As far as not informing anyone, they informed everyone who reads news articles.
    I knew it was coming.

    ...and of course the workaround to install Google Wallet starting in the browser then going back and using the Market doesn't work anymore.

    It was a two part change for me. I got a notice that there was a change to the market last night, but the name was the same. Today when I accessed it I got a message that the name changed and I had to accept the new TOS. Then the icon was gone from my home screen. Not a big deal to add it back etc.

    As for the name change... I'm pretty neutral really. It's an odd choice but I think Google is trying to synchronize the names of their apps (wonder if GMail will get a name change?). Doesn't affect my day-to-day operation of my phone, icon looks funny though (I liked the Android dude).

    I think its a great idea and I like the market. I just think its a terrible name for a brand whose purpose is to unify your products.

    I was updating angry birds seasons when the "play" update came through. Froze my phone and deleted seasons, the whole game. Update is nice, though.

    Have you gotten the new updated "market"? AKA Play Store (by Google) and have the unusable icon in your app drawer for your old "market"? (the one by the clock when you have the app drawer open) Maybe you want the "market" back.

    That all leads to a question?!? Can't you just go to "manage apps" and select "all" then go to "Play Store" and select "uninstall updates" and get the market back with a working icon in the app drawer?

    Just curious. Some people might want the old market back until they get the icon in the app drawer working for the Play Store.

    Can anyone confirm this? (I would try but my Maxx is on charge at the moment in my work truck)

    Same here. I just opened the Market and it asked if I accepted the Play Store terms. No change that I can see, even after rebooting.

    It wasn't until evening that I got a text saying that I would be getting it in a couple of days.

    For those that wonder about the name or are dissatisfied with how this launched, Dan Morrill of Google had a post about the Android Market evolution on Google+. Here is his link if you care to read it: https://plus.google.com/u/0/112413860260589530492/posts/B3VdLfsL1AY . Follow Android Developers, Google, Play Store or whatever trips your trigger on G+ and you will have a lot of the info as it prepares to launch or as it breaks.

    I guess they'll call Gmail Play Mail.
