    The New Android Market is Coming Soon

    In the past as we and every other user of the current Android Market has experienced major [Fail] in the experience. However in Google’s preview of Android 2.2, there is a new Android Market coming to offer more than the iTunes-like experience we have been begging for. Why do we even want an iTunes-like app store experience, why not go beyond that for a Web experience? The new Android Market will allow you to sign in, search all 50,000+ Android Apps and actually download them wirelessly not only to your phone, tablet, TV… let’s just say device as the list will go on!
    In the demo today at Google I/O 2010 we saw apps being downloaded from the Web as well as music from iTunes library able to be streamed to the phone irrelevant of DRM-protection. The Android Market on the phone will have a few enhancements as well with ability to update all applications versus individually, automatic updates so you don’t have to bother at all, apps can be installed to SD card obviating one of the largest pains many Android users have experienced with low internal memory storage. This comes with Android 2.2 software update.

    Nice idea but if they are going to change the entire market, wouldn't they have to update all android devices to 2.2 to use it.

    agreed all I wanted was a "update all" option, but they added that and more!

    Good question, Charles, but from the looks of things, it appears this version of the market is a much more "weblike" experience, much like iTunes. I'd think that it could distinguish between features available to devices running 2.2 (like mass updates) versus those available only to versions with a previous version of the o/s. I may be mistaken but I believe the iTunes store can do this.

    I love that this has the desktop version but I'm not sold on the update all button for my apps. I've seen way to many updates released that break previously ok versions.

    Good point.. my guess will be that the new market will be for those with 2.2 and the old will remain till everyone is upgraded.
