Brand New Android Market for Phones; Now with Movie Rentals, Books, and Better App Search

Over the next few weeks Google is rolling out a brand new Android Market for phones; check out this introductory video to see all the new features.

The new market features better app search and suggestion–including extra categories to better highlight the top downloads across a more diverse spectrum–movie rentals, ebooks, and a totally overhauled interface. Check out the video to see a demonstration of the new features and, if you have an Android 2.2 or above device, stand by for an update in the near future. If you absolutely can’t wait to try the new market, you can grab a development copy and install it ahead of schedule.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    @trinity343, no kidding, I’m definitely not letting it install on my phone. Time to make a backup of the current Market…

    Already.

    I only got my first android last week!

    updating it has already taken me through two others!

    Looks quite a bit like windows. I would rather see a Linux like interface.
